    I appreciate how Hooptie showed his basic integrity by removing this unsafe thing from the road, even though it cost him a bunch of money to do that. Thank you very much, you are a good man, sir. It's only money - and you know how to make more of that, better than many people, at least.
    Rust never sleeps. Many people in dry southern parts of the US do not understand what rust does to vehicles that are kept in area where there is salt water, or where the roads are salted, or where a car could be used to drive through watery areas.

    Based off what’s still good on that car you might be able to minimize the financial damage. You’ve got 4 good doors that might be worth 500 bucks. You’ve got a good drivetrain that someone might be willing to buy. The engine and trans are worth a few grand, the interior has good seats and trim pieces. I would suggest gutting the car for any good parts that are worth money. Then after your done haul the hulk to the local scrap dealer and that should get you a few hundred bucks

      @Patrick Depends on where the car came from. In areas where they don't salt the roads structural rust isn't really a problem. My mom lives near Seattle and has a '99 Forester with no issues.

    • Patrick
      Patrick 3 months ago

      @Chicken Pot Pie calm down, lady. And I did own a 98 Impreza WRX and EVERYBODY warned me not to buy a Subaru because they are ticking timebombs when it comes to rust, and especially worn cylinder heads. I did do my research back then. And I'm well aware of Tyler's origins, which are completely irrelevant to how and who he is NOW.

  • TDC flyer
    TDC flyer 4 months ago +19

    Wow, that thing was gnarly.
    In my experience Subarus are very good cars - for a limited time. Once the limit is reached the literally fall apart. The duration is determined by miles on the street and exposure to salt, and this one seems to be a great example of massive salt exposure.

    • Rusty Shackelford
      Rusty Shackelford Month ago

      Subarus are awesome. The only reason they're known for bad rust is because people always drive them where it snows a lot so they are usually exposed to a lot of salt.

      That’s what I was thinking. I’ve had nothing but good luck with subarus. Had a great 04 forester that I wish I still had. Had a 92 outback, both well over 200k miles. Have a great 2010 Impreza now. That Baja was exposed to a lot of salt and road hard and put away wet!

      @Rusty Shackelford if you know what to look for you can get a really good idea if it's got problems. I have no qualms getting on the ground and looking underneath, even with the salesman or owner standing right there. Looking for rust, leaks, areas where there may have been frame repair. Check CV boots, tie rod ends, anything you can see. Bring a good flashlight. Topside look for panel alignment, paint differences, over spray. Look in the trunk behind the carpet for mismatched panels, leaks. Spare tire well. Seam sealer. Check under the hood same stuff. Make sure the glass all matches. All this before you even start it up. Always start it cold to listen for noises. Then drive and decide.

    • Robert Bell
      Robert Bell Month ago

      @DumbledoreMcCracken don't think that EVs will be some utopian panacea. They will have many of the same problems as ICE cars. Unless poor quality or poorly maintained, engine and transmission issues are rare. All EVs with age and mileage will have battery issues to varying degrees. Depends on how the prior owner took car of it.

    Can confirm. I bought a 2004 Subaru Outback for $2600 a while back. I spent that much in repairs just to get it to pass inspection. Spent another $2k keeping it running. The exhaust sensors never worked which meant the cruise control and other features didn't work. Was horrible... but at 250k miles, I guess I should have expected it.

    • Tyler Braden

      it's not the mileage but the area of the country it operates in. I bought a 2001 Outback from Houston with 225k. No rust anywhere and it rides like a dream because the previous owner put new shocks on it not that long ago.

      @Bearded Frog nice, car sounds almost exactly the spec I would want. I am part of a car club that regularly rents the local circuit track, so the manual is a must for me as we do lapping days at least a half dozen times a year. When I'm on the street I rarely end up in places where I hit bumper to bumper traffic, I tend to stick to the back roads out in the country so I can have some fun with the car away from people. And yes, the SVT is a blast to drive, that supercharger whine never gets old! Cheers to you as well and take care.

    • Bearded Frog
      Bearded Frog 4 months ago

      ​@Derek Gardin Hah, mine is indeed white with all the carbon fiber add-ons and black accents to go with it (black badge package, black wheels, calipers, mirrors/spoiler/grille/etc). Mine is auto though. I know it's a hard thing for some people to accept, but the auto really is better. You cannot come close to out shifting that trans. Lightning quick shifts. You also of course gain MPG. You'd be surprised how fuel efficient a C7 is. I get 30-35 MPG (13-15 kpl) on the highway at 80-85mph (128-137 kph) It's also just better for daily use. Manual is fun occasionally, but daily use can get tiresome. Traffic, and stuff like that sometimes you just wanna let the car do it. Plus you can always still use the paddle shifters if you feel like picking gears on your own. Not the same I know. but still.
      Anyway yeah, you really should get one. Although values/prices are insanely high like most things right now. They're hard to beat. If you get one with magnetic ride control it's like the perfect car that does everything (except winter as discussed lol). Can daily it all day in eco/tour and it's super comfortable, then drive it hours away to a track while getting excellent gas mileage, track it all day in track mode, and drive it back home. Can't beat it. Not that a supercharged cobra isn't a blast to have in its own right of course!
      Anyways, take care!

    • Derek Gardin

      @Bearded Frog I'm just North of Toronto, by about 20 minutes. Most of our roads are pretty good, there are a few that could use re-doing but easy enough to avoid. I love the C7's I've always wanted one, they are beautiful and hard to argue the performance for $ on them. One of these days I'll pull the trigger on one, has to be a manual of course and white would be my ideal choice. Glad you drive it like it's supposed to be driven while still taking excellent care of it. Cheers and stay safe

    • Bearded Frog
      Bearded Frog 4 months ago +1

      @Derek Gardin Nice, good to see a northern example of those staying clean. Clean ones are harder and harder to find.
      I've got a C7 Z51 I bought new custom ordered that sleeps in my climate controlled garage on the tender through the winters. Between that and being entirely wrapped in Xpel PPF it stays about brand new, even though I drive the hell out of it in the other months.
      However, not sure where you live in Ontario, but you guys have amazing quality roads. I used to drive to Toronto quite a bit. Roads were mint the whole way once I crossed the boarded and even in the city and stuff on the way. Michigan roads look like a third world war zone. It's like a constant additional challenge to keeping things nice here lol. So at least you've got that.

  • DirectCollision
    DirectCollision 2 months ago +3

    I’m curious, do you guys in the U.S. have places that perform yearly rustproofing treatments? I see lots of videos and comments about rust being absolutely inevitable and people not driving their cars in the winter because of that, but here in Canada (at least in Quebec), rustproofing is a fairly common thing with places like Metropolitan and Krown. If you properly treat it every year, your car will remain rust free for the lifetime of the vehicle. It’s not a gimmick: we have a 1997 and a 2009, both with well over 250,000 km (about 155,000 mi) driven through many winters... and no rust on them. So when you see corrosion here, it’s not because it’s completely unavoidable, but more because the car hasn’t been treated. 😉

    • DirectCollision
      DirectCollision Month ago

      Yep, lots of scam here as well, mostly from dealers who offer 10-year rustproofing which is baloney. But absolutely, so much relies on the quality of the product and how well it’s applied. We’ve been frequenting the same places for many years and they’ve been great. It’s sprayed everywhere with an access point, including the inside of many parts like the door panels. We often see others on the road with the same 2009 F-150, sometimes newer, all ragged out... and ours is still perfect. So when done properly, it does work!

    • Rusty Shackelford
      Rusty Shackelford Month ago +1

      There are places but the chain ones are a scam. They use a rubberized undercoating which actually makes it much worse. Independent shops will sometimes apply a used oil undercoating which is pretty effective. A lot of the effectiveness of any "rust proofing" is dependent on how well it is applied. For instance even the best rust proofing isn't going to help much if you're just spraying it right over the dirt water and rust and totally skipping any hard to reach areas

    • Derek Schultz

      In America, people who aren't into cars tend to run their vehicles into the ground with minimal maintence. People who rust proof tend to be country folk or the few non-insane people left.

  • killthecosmos イリデセント

    When I got my wrx 3 years ago, I didn't think so much of it. Mainly because it was automatic. But I loved it otherwise. I didn't get it on a lift until half a year after that moment. Super clean car on the outside. But underneath it was super rusty and things were failing. One of the axles was bent too. So much for 3 grand. I ended up totaling it 2 years earlier from now.

    "I thought it was a regular Subaru, but then I opened the rear doors and saw rust" So, a regular Subaru. I had a 1998 WRX, there you didn't even have to open the doors to see the rotten mess the wheelarches were. Overlapping panels without rust proofing are a very good idea.

    This is one of my favorite episodes of Hoovie's garage in a long, long time. I have gotten a bit tired of seeing the unobtanium (for me) that has populated more recent episodes. The Baja is a vehicle that I can actually imagine affording. That alone makes this episode relatable and more engaging. But then add in the catastrophic rust issues and Car Wizard's genuine reaction to the condition of the car and you have gold.

    "Look, Mom, I just spent $9,000 on a couple of buckets of Japanese rust." On the other hand, this vehicle from Subaru was way ahead of its time. You could work on it in a tool-less fashion, just with your hands and fingers.

  • mick m
    mick m 3 months ago +1

    That's like a throwback to the Subarus of the 70s, the era when Subarus were guaranteed to rust out. As a little kid, I recall my father's tan Subaru wagon rusting to the point where 2 bars had to be welded to the front struts to keep them from flopping around- the spare in that era was stored over the engine and that had to be removed. The front fenders would flap in the wind because a line of rust would eat a hole from the headlights to the door. And the front floor pans had holes rusted in them so you could see the road going by, feel the winter wind coming in, and on wet or slushy days, get sprayed by whatever was on the road. I think the old man's car was worse than Hoovie's when he finally took it off the road. It was under 5 years old, and around 80,000 miles. Still ran great. I think it had the 1.4 engine.

    Welcome to my world Hoovie! I bought a lightly rusted 2003 Forester for my twin daughters to share. I have never taken a motor out of a car before, but I now know how to pull one out of a Subaru Forester and replace the head gasket. My daughters said they "needed" a second car, so I bought used more rusted 2006 Forester, presumably needing a head gasket, but actually needed a cam shaft. I now have pulled 3 Subaru Forester engines, I pulled the 06 engine and then had to pull a replacement motor out of a totaled, 06 Forester donor car. The good news, both Subarus are running, to and from high school on a daily basis. Can I buy the 2004 Baja to make into a farm truck?

      -Interestingly, a TheXvid channel called "Mighty Car Mod" took apart a high mileage Subaru engine, and found it was in great shape, so they put it back together and called the car "Miles", and used it for some projects. So the mileage isn't always a good indication of how good it is.-
      Man, I remembered incorrectly .... it was a Skoda Octavia with a turbo diesel engine, and the TheXvid channel was Car Throttle.
      That said, it had 430'000 miles on it, and was named Miles, the high mileage hero.

      Everybody says that without thinking what's involved in parting a car out. If you aren't a mechanic, you have to PAY SOMEONE to pull parts. You have to PAY SOMEONE to store them. You have to deal with phone calls and emails and text messages asking about this 5 dollar part or that 10 dollar part that someone else long ago bought. Eventually, you'll sell maybe 10% of the thing and have the remaining 90% sitting in a driveway, or in your yard, or, having to pay someone to store it.
      Simply put, unless you are in the business of parting cars out, it's a stupid proposition.

    Hi!!!... Excellent video!!! Thanks!!!
    I bought one of those, 2005 Subaru Baja Turbo (auto trans) with 110k miles on the odometer (Carfax checked), just like that on the video, two years ago. Few months later, I began to hear some weird sounds coming from the suspension and, guess what... rust every where!!!😳 Fortunaly, theres no structural issues. My big problem now is to find a good online site to buy all needed parts (struts assembly, control arms, balljoints, bushings, links, etc... ), all of them at good price in only one purchase.
    A question I have to you guys is: Is there a compatibility between the Baja with other Subaru models???... So I have a better change to find all that parts.

They didn't even try to patch it, they just sprayed foam insulation into the gaping rust hole. It also had about 2 inches of water in the passenger foot well. I still had to test drive it and give it the beans, but unfortunately it drove like it was about to stall at any given moment. It's definitely a fun car if you like unconventional things. Still wouldn't mind finding a nice one someday, but those Hyundais are looking pretty nice 👀

I always like looking at what they have and one day a few months ago a Baja showed up there.

Admittedly I was still almost tempted to go into the dealership and make an offer on it.

    My old Subaru lasted 8 yrs and 140k mi before it could rust out b/c that's when I drove it to SoCal - where it blew a HG on the 405. (The mechanic who bought it from me must've fixed it up b/c I think I saw it around 10 yrs later.) Anyway, having also seen a dangerously crusty Forester on South Main Auto, I shudder to think how many more rust buckets like these are out there on the roads.

      That's one reason why there was so much concern about the MOT Exemption law coming in, for vehicles over 40 years of age! So many people expected the roads to suddenly be filled with death traps, but the fact is, the vast majority of cars over 40 years of age, are owned by enthusiasts like me (see my channel) so they are mostly better maintained than cars a quarter of their age!
      As for some other comments regarding values, yes, its very true that the looming MOT test does de-value a lot of older cars to the point of very little value and it is indeed one reason why we have so many cheap cars around! Sadly, we also have a culture of simply throwing away perfectly good cars based on MOT test failures, where any repairs will cost more than the cars value! Its sad how many car ive seen scrapped here, which could have many more years of use elsewhere in the world!

    We had the similar Ford Sport Trac for 12 years, or something like that, and we loved every inch of it and miss it a heck of a lot. When we had to let it go that little vehicle didn't owe us a penny. We didn't need a full pickup bed or we would have bought a full size pickup truck. There are a couple of people in our area who had Sport Tracs for many years also because we would see them parked at their homes and going about town. Ours had the tonneau cover which made it even nicer and we'd buy another one in a heartbeat if it wasn't made by Ford. That's why we were considering a Baja.

    I drove a car in the midwest as a daily winter car until it was in a similar condition. Ran perfectly but finally sold it for $400 due to rust. Always made sure the brakes were in good shape and that the major suspension components were secure to the body, but it was finally time. It's always a shame to let a good car go that rusted away but never wore out.
    The guy that bought it plopped down the $400 without even asking to hear it start up and asked if it could make the drive 60 miles to where he lived. I said it'd make it to Alaska if that's where he wanted to go. 2 years later I saw it for sale for $700. I guess it wasn't quite rusted out yet!

And even then, all they are really doing is inspecting the VINs. Something like this car would have been off the road over in Germany, the UK, etc. many years ago, but over here's it's not all that uncommon.

    If it had true mileage, Tyler, I would find a decent non turbo automatic shell to transplant all the guts into.

    3.5 out of 10 on the rust scale for New York state. It would still probably pass inspection at most shadier shops.

    I love how the wizard opens the back door and says what’s that and who he says oh that’s for sound deadening and then the wizards like yeah no it looks like it’s been patched over a hole that you can put your fist through. I’m pretty sure hiding stuff from the wizard is almost impossible when it comes to cars

    Wizards reaction when he finds the back end was not supported was almost as good as the reaction to the R8 absolutely brilliant

      Happens to me all the time at my work and the sketchy ass lifts. You got 3 you're good. In this case though the lifts are actually installed properly so it could be the unibody flexing. Or the use of different jacking points in the rear.

      They straight up bailed. No staging that, they were afraid for their lives.

    Looks like this car did exactly what it was advertised and named for. Driving on the salty and sandy beach with pebbles and salt working is oxidizing magic.

    I found one locally last year with a blown head gasket and rough everything and 200k miles on it and it was only 3500.

    Back about 25 years ago when I was twistin' wrench's, we would "NEVER" let a car drive off the lot like this. The only way it would leave was on a wrecker headed to a salvage yard.
