Thats not an XT. Subarus are awesome snowboard cars and awesome cars in general. I prefer manual for the better traction from the automatics. All of them are good. I like the OBs or Fozzies because of the little more clearance over the impreza and newer legacys. I got my 2003 forester with 100,000 miles for $5300 a couple years ago. if you get one with over 100,000 miles make sure that the timing belt was replaced. easier on the wallet.
