Been by far the best car/truck I have ever owned. For me there is enough power, even here in the DC area. Even 3 years later people ask about it when in parking lots. My MPG has been as low as 18 commuting city streets, with 22 commuting on combined city/hwy, and 29 hwy (a high of 31 hwy on a long flat stretch at 60mph). Looked at the Ford SporTrac, so glad that I skipped it for the Baja. A better fit for the real world IMO. Was able to handled some very rutted roads to a cabin in the Smokys very well.
The pickup bed with the bed extender saved my bacon a number of times. Great MPG for what it can do. Driven sensibly, the AWD system can keep one safe from some pretty heavy weather.
A diesel option in order to boost torque and give an added boost to the MPG's. Update it to keep with the style cues of the newer Outbacks. Advertise the Baja! It is much better than the sales numbers show.
