Cool 2007/08 Forester XT Sports/Limited

Hey guys, my beloved Saab was totaled recently. Hoping to turn a bad situation into the vehicle I've wanted for years... 2007/08 forester xt sports/limited. Auto or MT. I'm located in Boulder, Colorado and willing to travel, depending, and also comfortable working out shipping via carrier for the right car. Only really want dark metallic grey, black, silver, or white.
- under 125k miles unless meticulously maintained/recorded
- clean, no major problems
- will consider 2006 if low miles


cash in hand!!! wanting to find a sale asap
thanks!

You mentioned it was $14-15k, which was out of my price range. Plus you said you were gonna check it out first for yourself and get back to me. I just forgot. Apologies

No worries, no offense meant = ) I just figured I was going to hear back from you after I gave the details. It's a great deal for a UGM 5MT with 80k, plus the owner is a stellar guy. But that's why I wanted to ask what your budget was, just trying to help out another local = ) I really like it, but with some other circumstances occurring atm I couldn't pull the trigger. I'm sure you will see it on CL pretty soon. He's a little flexible but still looking to get around 14k. Anyways, happy searching!

It definitely does sound like a clean Foz, just a bit out of budget at the moment. Most definitely appreciate your help in my search. I found a 2007 w/ only 52k miles on it in Denver the other day and had been talking to the owner over the weekend, agreed to test drive it yesterday w/ cash in hand, and the ******* sells the car to someone else 10 minutes before I get to his house. Unbelievable. So I'm still searching!

It was a 4EAT and he had it listed for $9600 on craigslist, super clean inside and out.

Well my 2 cents, if your not hung up on having a 5MT, wait for for clean 4eat. They are much more reasonably priced and readily available.
