Review of the 2003 Subaru Baja

  • An interesting car-and-pickup blend that comes up a bit short in outright functionality.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Comfortable ride, stable handling, decent fuel mileage, multiple configurations, unlikely to be lost in a parking lot.

  • Cons

    Midgate's glass isn't removable, limited towing and hauling capability.

  • What's New for 2003

    The Baja is all new for 2003. It's similar to the Subaru Outback, but it has an open cargo bed. Certainly a niche vehicle, it should appeal to people with active lifestyles, especially those who ski or surf.

Vehicle: 2003 Subaru Baja Sport AWD 4dr Crew Cab (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

I am 6'1" and 225 lbs. I found the vehicle to be above ave. in room, ride and road noise. It performs beautifully at highway speeds and in curves, and has plenty of pep from 0- 60 mph. It hauls the 1/4 ton payload with ease and the bed extender allows for needed space to haul multiple appliances or building materials especially with the pass through design in the crew cab. It seats 4 mature adults with comfort and all controls are easy to reach for the driver. My Baja is a stick shift 5 speed and use it in my home rental business and as a toad for my motor-home. I have never owned a vehicle that I have received some many compliments and requests for information and viewings. I will own another one!

Excellent traction on wet roads. Can't wait to test in Winter. Could use more power. But once moving feels spirited when need to passing.
