Scams

IMO this is kind of a scam.
This cars needs more than a new timing belt. The model car has an interference type engine. That means when the timing belt breaks the piston can hit and bend the valves.
And most like that happened. he says..... The vehicle needs a new timing belt installed and I don't have the time right now to take care of it.

What he almost certainly knows is one would be a fool to put timing belts on and do all the head and valves work on an engine with 213 thousand miles on it.

2000 Subaru Forester - Clean Title - AWD 2.5L

This has been a great car, extremely capable. Full service history available, clean Carfax. All regular maintenance performed at normal intervals. Maintenance performed at Miles Automotive in Talent.

The vehicle needs a new timing belt installed and I don't have the time right now to take care of it. Would be a great fixer for a mechanic. Everything else on the vehicle has been well maintained, oil changes every 3-5k. New battery (2018). Transmission was just serviced earlier this year. Brakes replaced last year.

Vehicle has Yokohama AT tires with lots of tread left, used only 2 seasons along with exclusive snow tires in the cold season. These tires alone value at over $500. I also have a set of winter snow tires (non-studded) available that were only used one season this past year. I will include these for an additional $100.

Everything else on the vehicle is mechanically sound, suspension is solid. Engine performed great until timing belt went out last week. Interior is in decent shape for a 20 year old vehicle. No tears or major issues. Sound system upgraded with Infinity speakers at all 4 corners.

Vehicle registration is good through most of 2020.

Located in Talent, please inquire to set up time to view vehicle. Pictures were taken yesterday, apologies for being a bit dirty.

Email or text message preferred. 5four1-eight4one-00four1

Want this vehicle sold ASAP. Ready for offers! $650 OBO

No, they don’t know. That’s just what people seem to want for broken vehicles these days. Should be a parts car for $200.

I think the owner does know. IMO if the guys timing belt broke the first thing most people do is call a mechanic shop and ask how much to fix it.
And if so the mechanic is going to say it needs a hell of a lot mote than just the timing belts.

Its a 60’s middleweight with 26” rims.
A parts bike at best at $20.00. I’m guessing they found it in the woods or the shed where they’re tending pot.
No one else would be so dumb.
