2003 Subaru Baja AWD 4dr Crew Cab (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

What a great vehicle! Have had it for 3 months and love it. The bed is way more functional than it appears at first, especially with the bed extender. We can easily take scuba gear, ball gear, bikes, kayaks, and skis wherever we want to go without using huge amounts of gas. The interior is comfortable, feature-rich, intuitive, and stylish. There is a solid feel that is not apparent in many vehicles in its price range. The AWD is a dream and it's fun to drive. Take it from the ones who actually own and drive the Baja every day-it's a great value that should bring a smile to your face.

Favorite Features

AWD, 4-door (4 adults do fit comfortably), bed extender, gas mileage, hydraulic hard top, overall vehicle size, color, exterior and interior styling, comfort, ride, handling in all weather, and darn it, it's just plain cute!

Suggested Improvements

As everyone indicates, a bigger engine. This should not be a showstopper, however, because it does perform quite well. Would also like to see heated seats. The manual transmission can be a bit too sensitive at times, but that's better than not being sensitive enough.
