Maroon Subaru Baja Turbo 2005 / ~255,000 mi / Melbourne FL, USA

Post by SolarSupremacy »

New to the forums. I'll update and add more to this post later.

I have a '05 Baja Turbo with 255,000 miles.
I don't want to take it to a scrap yard and have it torn apart. It still runs and someone can make use of it.

It's been in Maine for, probably, all of it's life. A year ago I drove it from Maine to Florida because I'm stationed in Florida now.

In the last 12 months:
Downstream O2 sensor was bad. Installed a new one.
Front brakes were bad. I installed entire new front brake assemblies (calipers, rotors, pads).
Plastic seal on the radiator blew recently. I had a brand new one installed at a local automotive shop.
Exhaust rusted enough that I had to rip the muffler off. I still have it but you'd need new pipes to use it.
It also has a misfire on one of the cylinders. This is the only OBDII code.

I also designed and installed RGB underglow under it with a controller in the dash. It looks jank but it's very easy to remove if you don't want it.

Edit: I'll get better pictures soon. The paint looks great, but it has rust on the undercarriage.
