Contemplating a Forester - turbo with a manual trans
Hello all! The time is coming to trade in the wife's old vehicle for something new and we have our eyes on a few Subarus. Is there a thread with all relevant information on the Forester? At Jeepforum. there is an entire thread named "thinking of buying a Jeep, read this" or something along those lines, is there one for the Forester? What to look for, red flags, what others paid, feature/trim comparison, popular modifications, ect.
I used to have a 2005 Outback XT Limited with a manual transmission and I absolutely loved it; stick shift? turbo? giant sunroof? I'm in! Sadly she was T-boned a few years ago and I'm now in a diesel Jeep (which I also love!). I pulled the banjo filters on my Outback, are Foresters the same design?
We are hoping to find a Turbo Forester with a manual trans somewhere around $15k. Not sure how much of a pipe dream that is. Seems that people who have them, keep them which is also a good sign of its quality but the manual transmissions seem much less desirable.
