This car runs and drives great.
Has the All Weather Package that includes heated seats, heated mirrors, heated wipers and weather band radio.
The only thing I've had to do other than normal maintenance over the past 8 months was change a headlight and taillight.
This car has been amazingly reliable and I average 23-25 mpg in the city and 28-30 mpg on the highway.
The only reason I'm selling is I've bought another car and no longer need this one.
There are only 3 issues that I can think of with the car. The air conditioning doesn't work currently, there is no belt on the compressor and there hasn't been one since I bought the car. Never tried to put a new one on, may be as simple as putting a belt on the compressor. There is a shake in the steering wheel at highway speeds, doesn't start until about 65mph. The 2 front tires could use replacement, the 2 rear tires are only about 4 months old. The tires may be the cause of the highway steering wheel shake.
KBB value is a bit over $3100 w/o a/c since it isn't working
NADA value is $4800, most banks use this for loan purposes
Cash is accepted. Any form of check or money order must be deposited and clear my bank before the vehicle will be released.
The title is currently held by a local company that I bought the car from. It can be picked up from there with 24 hour notice and payoff when picking it up. If you choose to send the funds in advance to have them clear then once cleared I can have the title picked up and ready for you when you pick up the vehicle.
As you can tell I have positive feedback and will answer any questions I can about the vehicle.

The Subaru Brat is the automotive equivalent of a teenager with a mullet: weird, a little reckless but brimming with enough self-confidence to make it cool.

The Brat came from Subaru's desire to compete in the burgeoning light pickup market of the late-1970s. To get around the so-called Chicken Tax that added a 25 percent tariff on imported pickup trucks, Subaru threw two seats in the bed, which technically allowed it to be classified it as a passenger car. The result was a great, weird combination of a complete lack of safety, with a low price and lots of driving fun.
In the video below, Motor Trend's Johnny Lieberman takes a 1978 Brat through the desert and shows just how much fun a little pickup can be.
Thanks to currency fluctuations and their impact on the bottom line, a growing number of Japanese automakers are starting to increase vehicle production in the US, and it appears Subaru could be the next to do so. According to Bloomberg, Subaru is looking into expanding production capacity at its Lafayette, Indiana assembly plant, which currently builds the Outback, Legacy and Tribeca as well as the Toyota Camry.

Subaru's Indiana plant currently has an annual maximum capacity of 310,000 units, but the automaker is expecting to far exceed that figure this year, with year-to-date sales of 299,788 units through November (not including Camry) - an increase of almost 30 percent over 2011. The report indicates that Subaru could expand the plant to add as many 50,000 additional units to the plant, likely in the form of either the Forester or Impreza.
In December, I put the 2015 Subaru WRX through its paces along some incredibly challenging roads in northern California, and to say I walked away impressed wouldn't really do my feelings justice. Say what you will about the way it looks, the new 'Rex is an awesome car, full stop. When it comes to all-weather sports sedans that won't break the bank, it's very tough to beat the WRX.
But then there's its big brother - the STI. The winged wonder. The rally superstar. The car that, to many - and to me - represents all that is right in the world of dirt-and-gravel thrills. Sharp as the WRX has always been, the hardcore STI model has always been a little bit sharper. But in recent years, that hasn't always been a good thing. What I've liked most about the WRX is the fact that it's not an always-on attack missile - it can be forgiving, easy to drive, and if I'm honest, reasonably comfortable. Because of that, in the WRX/STI debate, I've preferred the former for daily driving activities. I've always had a thing for That Wing, but in the outgoing car, the STI was never really far and away a more rewarding car to drive, and it offered exactly zero upgrades in terms of comfort or refinement.
The 2015 WRX is easily the finest example of Subaru's hot hatch sedan to date. But what happens when you try to turn the dial past 11? I headed back to NorCal, including a stop at the historic Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, to find out.
