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.

So far so good

Vehicle: 2004 Subaru Baja Turbo AWD 4dr Crew Cab (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

After doing much research, and based on my needs, I decided to purchase a used Baja. Finding one in Pittsburgh, it was a 5 speed turbo, and I can say thus far that I am very happy with it. I do a lot of driving and the Baja is a very enjoyable ride, from the power. The sport like handling and feel, then mix in the versatility of the pick up bed, plus its good and/or unusual look, I am very satisfied so far. Then add in Subaru safety and reliability, I guess you can say I am now a convert. I picked up a bed cover, a bike hitch carrier, plus a few other accessories, and am good to go.

Before buying this vehicle, I was buying a new vehicle every year. I've finally found a vehicle that meets all of my needs, and is durable and reliable!




Great fun and works great

The Turbo Baja is the all time sleeper. This car is fast as well as being tough. After a year we still love every minute of driving this vehicle. What people never realize until AFTER they own it is just how great the handling and ride are. With the exception of front legroom, the interior cabin size is great, with plenty of passenger space. The folding rear seats are very handy.

I am sold big time. I bought an all silver, manual, turbo and boy can she fly- and a real eye catcher. This car is an absolute blast to drive. It is a sports car with the ability to perform all the functions of a small truck. Who knew!? It is a four seater but lots of room and very comfortable and the sound system is excellent. I wanted something reliable, fun and versatile and this car is all of that. They make a cover for the backend so essentially you can store stuff like a trunk or use it for hauling anything- the versatility is insane. Suburu reliability, amazingly fun, AWD! and overall versatility of the vehicle - all at an amazing price.




Fun car

I love this vehicle. It maneuvers great. It is just fun to drive.




This truck is a blast

My Turbo Baja handles like a sedan, will haul my bicycles or dirt bike and accelerates like a musclecar. The interior is well designed and very comfortable. The five speed was hard to find but well worth the effort. If 80% of the full size truck drivers would admit to themselves that this is all they really need for hauling and off road operation---they would be a lot happier on a daily basis.
