Default Lookin for a used Subaru

Anyone have good leads to find a used Subaru? I'm not looking to debate on a better brand haha so that being said I was looking between the Forester, Outback and The Baja and without turbo. I'm workin on $12k limit here and I'm from Orange County in SoCal if it's local and if it's online and there's shipping it'll need to be within that limit. I'd appreciate it!

I wont convince you to get another car. I bought my first subaru two years ago and I love it. I don't see me changing brands...unless i can ever afford a new Audi S5 or R8.

If you are looking for a dealer and not a private sale, I bought from Heuberger Subaru. They are here in Colorado Springs so no where near SoCal, but they do ship a lot of cars out of state. I would say give them a call ask for Big Mike, he sold me mine and was pretty cool.

I checked out the site and they didn't have anything under 17k

Consider buying privately? Or, find some regional Subaru clubs to join up with, and poke around the classifieds section there. *If* you know what you're looking for, it's usually much cheaper to buy used privately, than through the Stealership.

I've been trying, there's just not a ton of options in SoCal. Just a bunch of worthless sedans for this record drought weather I just joined an outback based forum, so hopefully I'll get some hits on there. I've been hawking CL and Autotrader as well but I figured I'd ask around where I can

Be patient. It will happen. And I would seriously consider club sites as your best bet to find used Subaru's. Though there is one thing that I've noticed in the Cali area that finding vehicles like Foresters and Outbacks is almost like looking for a magical unicorn.

Got a couple leads....an 05 outback xt for 9k with 90k miles, and a little superficial dmg, which he offered to fix before selling, or a 06 Baja with 77k miles on it, no dmg for 11k. Leaning towards the baja since it doesn't have turbo, and it has less miles on it....and it's a fuckin Baja
