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

Review

I've had my Baja for about 5 months, so far it has been perfect, no problems at all. I have the non-Turbo four cylinder which I am very happy with. The gas mileage is better than I expected, acceleration is fine. The best feature of the Baja is it's versatility. True, it doesn't have a full-size pick-up bed but with the extender I haven't missed that. I really like the fact that I can move my kids home from college, have the bed packed full, and still have room for 4 people. Intially I didn't like the two-tone color scheme (red and silver) but now that I have had it for awhile I love it.

Best Features

The ride, the handling, the seats, all- wheel drive system, flexible pick-up bed.

Worst Features

The back seat should seat three, instead of two people. Initally I was unhappy that Subaru didn't offer a locking bed cover but now they offer two: a fiberglass version and a padded vinyl version. I recently purchased the padded vinyl version, it seems fine.
