Thanks guys for the positive input...what there was of it... haha!
I had it priced a little high because most people who call on a craigslist always try to lowball you on the price. So I always start high and then take offers. Although clean NADA on the car is actually 5,800 with the miles and having all of the options. I found one in WA state with 171,000 miles listed at 5 grand at a dealer out there, I thought that was way high for the mileage. I have never seen a Subaru XT with this low of miles and I have looked all over the country for over a year, so I don't want to give it away. But if anyone on the site here wants her, she's yours for $3,000!

you may consider telling the story of the paint job, why it's not factory original and the also non original strut conversion that's been done. normally wouldn't matter but with the extremely high asking price broadcast to a wide audience, folks are going to want to know that ahead of time.
Thanks for the input Gary, I thought of explaining all that on there, but the vast majority of car buyers wouldn't really understand it all anyway. haha. I figured I would explain it on here as everyone here should be enthusiasts and would definitely know whats up with it as you pointed out. The strut conversion was done by someone else and I was told by the previous owner that it has been converted over to '91 Legacy struts/suspension. It does ride and handle well with them and the conversion looks so professional you wouldn't know unless you knew they didn't originally come with normal struts.

I'm not sure what you mean by rattle can, unless you mean the 8 inches of black rhino lining around the bottom of the car, that was done by the previous owner to "protect against rock chips, rust and to make it look better" the rear bumper, spoiler, and mirrors were painted black to "make it look better also" which I agree with. As for the rest of the paint, it's definitely in great shape and definitely not rattle can. The car has also been undercoated. The spoiler actually makes it look waaaay better in my opinion, but w/e. lol
