    This fluid is still available directly from Subaru at a significant premium over more common types of hydraulic fluid. Pass-through folding rear seats and racing style front seats were standard equipment. The XT was loaded with features rarely found on small cars, such as a turbocharger , a computer-controlled engine and transmission, adjustable height suspension [1] and an optional digital instrument cluster.

    Seven Months Later: 74k-Mile Subaru XT Turbo | Bring a Trailer

    Unique car lovers, this one is for you. The seller talks about the only real rust to deal with is at the sunroof: When I purchased the car the entire roof had been flex sealed, this is because the roof has a minor leak and will need new gaskets and body filler if you want to fix it right. This is a good looking example, but there are a couple of dings, dents , and some missing trim.

    But, it has a very rare body kit which is fairly highly-prized by Subaru aficionados. Our own Jeff Lavery had a Subaru XT-6 with a 5-speed that he mostly restored and he may be running for the corner with the sweats when he sees this post. While he and his shop did a fantastic job on the restoration, it was just a highly-rare and hard-to-find-parts-for car that he may have PTSD to this day whenever he sees or even hears about a Subaru XT.

    He really tracked down some rare parts including rear window louvers which are like trying to find original parts for a Ford Quadricycle.. There will be the usual scratches and nicks and trips to the dent-doctor, but overall it appears to be solid. Subaru made the XT starting in with a turbo and non-turbo 4-cylinder boxer engine. Even more so, this car has a 5-speed manual, another feature that box-checkers like myself look for.

    Truthfully, this car checks just about every box for me: The early XT Turbo cars are sought after for their crazy high-tech digital dash cluster. An offset steering wheel? Everything about these cars were and are cool to me. How hard is that to fix? Jeff, are you still reeling from your experience? Pretty nice looking ride. Could be fun in snow country.

    Only notable damage I saw was in the front below the bumper. Now for the money question — why do you think there was not a single engine photo at least that I saw. Those are actually my seats and trip computer! I sold the seller those items when he was hot for the XT. As per the water pump: I believe the one on the left fires up the afterburner.. How do you like being a free consultant on Subaru XT posts?.. I believe upper one is for adjusting the steering column height; lower one is for the hood release.

    Unfortunately these cars get bought by VW Vanagon owners so they can transplant the engine and junk the rest. So it will be worth more as a parts car to them. I thought only French cars had wierd steering wheels! Thank you once again Barn Finds for sharing another modern automotive obscurity. That motor put out some decent torque and moved the GL around with real authority.

    It stuck to the road like paint no matter what the weather. The air suspension with adjustable ride height was quite the trick setup, too. Sorry if my repeating concerns anyone. A friend in college had an XT6, and that was a spaceship dreamy ride. Stay away from the early turbos, though. The wagon version was a favorite. His name was Jake. Never name your vehicles because you get too attached. I continued to care for it, religiously letting it idle for over a minute as instructed each time before turning off the ignition to ensure proper cooling and lubrication of the turbo bearings.

    They should have never added a turbo to that engine: Needed y-pipes, cylinder heads that cracked because of the heat and boost of the turbo, oil leaks that dropped onto the exhaust and smiled like crazy, a differential rebuild. I sold it when the replacement heads failed again. I refused to sell it to a single mom who was looking for reliable transportation.

    Buyer knew what he was getting into when he swung circles in a parking lot to check for cv joint clatter and left plumes of white smoke from burning coolant in rings around us. They should have never turbocharged that engine.
