No problem on the thread jack, I was going to turn it into a Craigslist rant

Same with mine but 70 something thousand miles was driving to hmb and started hearing the valves tapping, pulled over at first gas station and oil was dry as a bone

Said Iíd never buy a Subaru again, then shopped for cars to fit our needs and best fit still the Outback, plus reliability on all new cars has gone way down

I was brutally blunt with the sales guy, asked about the engine failures, he said that wonít be the problem anymore, will be the software that will give you problems now

Iím only a few months into the new one and wishing I had taken his comment more seriously

Sorry just realized I didnít post a price

Mechanic said if I want to sell fast on craigslist $6k, a friend and son who buy/sell cars and know this one said $7k minimum

Frankly my take on the used car market is it is nuts w prices going way over blue book, but my neighbor and a coworker just sold cars $2-3k over what they listed them. With extreme reluctance I listed this on craigslist and 30 seconds after I posted the scammers started their attack and havenít stopped, so Iím pulling the ad

Craigslist is a zoo full of nasty animals

My worry is we will sell this one and in a year be in a pickle trying to find something for our son to drive, so Iím simultaneously listing it and thinking of ways to trick it out for him. Anybody knows anything about whether you can lift them let me know

If it sells my wife will be happy, my son and I will be sad

Why the new engine?

Subaru engines were notorious for randomly blowing head gaskets and toasting the engine, known problem that I didnít know about til it happened to our car. I changed oil religiously My coworkerís friend makes his living rebuilding older Subaru engines with aftermarket head gaskets that are better than originals. This one also got a new block

Not sure why this never became a class action lawsuit

Situation is I want to trick it out and keep it for our son who will be driving in a year, my wife wants it gone

I bought a new one a few months back which I already have mixed feelings about

One owner, well maintained. Paint isnít perfect but is in decent shape, has some surface blemishes up top which I had sanded and blobbed on the paint. Black leather interior not perfect but in decent shape.

103k miles total with low miles on rebuilt engine with a new block($6500)

Low miles on Michelin tires. New battery, new starter motor and a few other things canít remember at the moment.

I just had the stereo/CD refurbished, which is an important detail because when the stereo goes the climate control goes with it

This was our kayak and surfing vehicle and has been a great car. Has Thule wing crossbars for which Iím currently trying to locate the keys

Iím listing here because the craigslist scammers are driving me nuts

Cash only. We will either sell or keep for our teen son who will be driving in a little over a year. I was advised by our mechanic about the pricing, but will be flexible to a point

Cash only, PM me if interested

I saw a big one off of Pedro but a few miles out

The video of Linda mar is a bit disturbing, looks like they snoop around right where we are lined up in the surf

For surfing we are keeping close tabs on conditions, which is fairly easy to do nowadays

That is one of the spots where tide runs are pretty incredible, I would advise anyone new to the place to look at that ahead of time

As I said, I swam there twice coming in one afternoon and not the unexciting kind of swimming, another time had doubts whether I could make it in. Probably wouldíve been smarter to fish longer and wait out the tide run before coming in. The rollers were very close steep and chaotic, 6-8 feet of fun ones. A guy went past on an epic, out just for the fun of it

All three of my kayaks are set up to be very manageable in situations like that. On both those occasions it was outgoing so leave it to the imagination what could go wrong if you were separated from your yak for instance

I always liked a little random adventure with my salmon but am too old for it now so would plan better if I do get out there again

Long way round to saying watch the swell and tides, more important there than most places
