After wrecking my 1999 Ranger, the Baja
was on my radar, but not the major
focus. After driving one, I was
hooked. The Baja was a fun little car
to drive. After some thought, the trade-
off of a smaller cargo capacity for
much better fuel mileage was worth it.
The Baja gets 5-7mpg more than the 4x4
compact trucks I was looking at. Even
on the Sport trim, there is a long list
of standard features. Seats are
comfortable enough and there is decent
headroom even with the moon roof.
Could use a bit more in the way of
power under the hood, but the Boxer-4
is more than enough for everyday
"Trucklet" styling. The swing-down
licence plate frame for the tailgate.
Fuel mileage. Long list of standard
features. "Switchback" pass-through.
Offer the "Subaru Blue" paint scheme.
The 6 cylander engine from the
Outback. Switch the cup holders from
the driver side to the passenger side
of the center console.
