Value of late 90's early 2000's Foresters

Have you guys seen the value of these things lately?? (I’ve got a 98 w/120k miles and, of course, a blown headgasket). It’s been said that if a car is in good condition and runs reliably, it’s worth at least a grand - obviously not these. I’m seeing dealer posts online, asking price mind you, in the $800 to $900 range. Unbelievable!! I guess the word is out. Maybe the dealer ads should read - 98 Subaru Forester in great conditions!! Guaranteed to blow a headgasket any day!!

I wanted to sell it and I was considering fixing it, but I doubt I could even get the cost of the repair, and that’s if I do it myself with cheap parts from Autozone! Oh well, I guess I’ll be making another trip to the local junkyard - kinda like taking your old dog to the vet for you know what…

Thanks for all your help and advice. You guys are great and I’m glad you’re here.

Sorry about your Forester. Such a nice vehicle to have such a tragic flaw.
