Start. Finish. Adventuring done right.

2001 Subaru Forester- $3500 
A superb winter vehicle. Drive confidently on slippery roads, mountain passes, or to the beach all year long, no worries!

Cosmetics: We think that the unique silvery green color goes very nicely with the simplistic and rugged styling of this Forester!  You'll definitely notice the crystal clear windows, the super basic layout of the controls, and how the design format is all about functionality in this car.  

Mechanical: Several crucial parts have been replaced: the head gaskets, the timing belt, water pump, upper and lower radiator hoses, heater core hoses, radiator, and battery have all been replaced. The tires are less than one year old, it has a new windshield, recent brake work done, all gearboxes have new oil, fresh engine oil and filter change. We verified that all the lights work, windows and door locks all work, and the cruise control works.

Other things to like about this vehicle include the high ground clearance, superb all wheel drive system, peppy 2.5L four cylinder engine, Subaru reliability, comfortable cloth seats, and we like the fact that it is a basic, solid, but very functional design. Comes with a trailer hitch for a small trailer and a full sized spare tire.

Blemishes: Some stains and tears on the seats. Right hand steering bellows boot is torn.

2007 Mazda 6i- $4500 
Very reliable, good looking, excellent condition, and very fun to drive this 5-speed!

Cosmetics: As good as you will see on any used 2007 car.  Definitely a car that you can take pride in driving around.

Mechanical: Fresh oil change, transmission servicing, recent belts, water pump, new rear brake pads, brake fluid flush, everything works, and everything serviced! Note: Roots Motors professionally upgraded this engine 45K miles ago to the peppier 2.5 liter Mazda engine.  

Other things to like about this vehicle gets good gas mileage.  Fun to drive (corners and handles really well).  Roomy sedan feel.  We like this car because we know 100% of it's mechanical history! 

Blemishes: Scratches on back bumper.

VIN: 1YVHP80C375M31172 Mileage: 137,000

Thoroughly vetted through our inspection program, we can prepare a car for you!

We super spa each car using an environmentally friendly process which significatly reduces soap drainage and completely stops any oil products from entering the rain water!    

 Our focus is here.  We have seen good results with our thorough process.    

Other things
to like about these cars: our focus really is adventure cars.  Generally all wheel or 4 wheel drive and a quality ride to get you there and back.

Many of these vehicles have small blemishes.  We are just fine with a few scratches or small to medium dents.  It's what's on the inside that we focus on. 
Notes:  We have worked with owners to find, buy, clean, and prepare an excellent vehicle!  Let us help you find a quality used adventure vehicle!
