hey everybody, new here and new to a forester, i havent actually gotten mine yet, but wed is the big day! did have a question concerning it, but i'll find elsewhere to post it! good to be here and looking forward to learning as much as i can!
Is it the rusting that has you concerned? If you're in a State that salts the roads in the winter, it's going to be difficult to find an '03 that's rust free. Here in Oregon, they don't use road salts, so even our '95 Neon is rust free. :smile:
If there's no body rust, most of the stuff underneath can be cleaned off & painted. It will be a PIA, but it can be done over the summer. You're going to have to get under there & have a good look. Better to know what's under there before you buy it. If the rusting is excessive, you might get the asking price reduced. :wink:
