History
I bought this car for $4,800 with what appeared to be a bad turbo. After I did some DIY work to the turbo system, it runs great. The guy I bought it from was the original owner, and bought the car new. It came with a roof rack, towing and cold weather package, a bike rack, and a ski rack. It is in great condition otherwise besides for a few dents. It cleaned up very nicely.

Turbo fix:

I rebuilt the turbo
Installed a new turbo inlet hose
Replaced the boost control solenoid (this step was unnecessary, but I didn't know it at the time)
Replaced boost lines and added a restrictor pill
Installed a new wastegate actuator
