Review of the 2004 Subaru Baja

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

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Comfortable ride, stable handling, Turbo model's peppy performance, convenience of an open bed, unlikely to be lost in a parking lot.

  • Cons

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

  • What's New for 2004

    A Turbo model joins the lineup, and true to its name, it comes with a turbocharged version of the base engine good for 210 horsepower and lots more fun. In other news, a revised suspension raises the Baja's ground clearance to 8.2 inches, and all models get new medium gray interior trim.

I really enjoy driving my baja. Great build quality. Many upgrades available for aftermarket tuners.




Best deal i have had

Vehicle: 2004 Subaru Baja Sport AWD 4dr Crew Cab (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Very comvertable ride. good pickup on inclines. good gas milage, I averaged 25.6 MPG over a one year period. I drive an average of 100 miles aday 7 days a week. I have had it for 16 months (480 days) I have 47,762 miles on it now. This was the first subaru I have owned , certianly not the last. There are two drawbacks that I have found 1)is that there is wind noise once you get up over 65 MPH. I have had the dealer deal with it on several visits, every time they fix it every time it comes back. 2) it is hard to see when you backing up.

This is our second Subaru this year. My wife drives an 04 LLBean Outback. Funny she like this almost as much. The ride is car like and the seating is comfortable ( front ) back seat is fine for kids or adults on a short trip. Mileage is improving with each fill up. Get a lot of comments like ..cool..awsome..etc. Get one you wont be sorry

I have a Magnetic Red Corvette to play with, but I gotta tell you the Baja gets more looks and compliments. The car is so easy to drive, the engine is smooth and powerful enough to take on all but the fastest at stoplights. The car can easily top 120 mph if you like and the harder you drive it, the better it performs. All wheel drive lets the the Subie and you laugh at snow and ice. Rain , Hah! Handles like dry ground. Gas mileage runs from 22 if driven like your in a WRC race and up to 32 on high way. This is a car I would recommend to anybody . I flat out love it.




Very happy

Just got mine 2 weeks ago, 1000 miles on it. Yes, I rack up the miles. I love the fact that it is a bit different and attracts attention. But most of all, I like the way it can handle the roads and conditions here in the NE. An inch higher ground clearance than my grand cherokee (150K miles in 6 yrs), good pick-up and all wheel drive. This isn't a light little thing either, not many lbs less than the jeep, but significantly better mileage and rides well over the rotten roads here. And the light grey bottom amd darker gray top is an awesome looking vehicle. Will carry bikes or hold all my camping gear.
