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 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.
Overall sports car feel of manual,
Accutremnets: AWD, antilock brakes,
great 6 CD in dash stereo (6 speakers
in the Turbo), sunroof, and overall
versatility of the car.
Cup holders in tough place when
operating a manual.
Remote lock/unlock- sometimes need to
press multiple times to unlock.
I have had the baja turbo for a little
over a week now. I must say this
caruck (pronounced car'-uck) is a great
vehicle. All reviews that I read
before buying this truck mentioned the
lack of space overall when mostly
compared to a pickup. I bought this
vehicle for the little home projects
that i want to do, my active lifestyle
(biking/hockey, etc) and this vehicle
suits my needs well. You get the
vesatility of being able to go to home
depot or you get the great feeling of
leaving everyone in the dust off of the
start/w/turbo around the neighborhood.
...steering wheel always hitting my leg
on the way in and to cumbersome to
raise and lower.
Engine (turbo), autoshift, versatility
of storage space, sweet cloth and
leather trim of the seats/interior.
tilt steering movements (easier to
move, and more movement (higher and
lower)...wish it had an option to add
radio controls on the steering wheel.
That's it for now though.
Replaced an old trusty Ford Ranger, and
worried about the fact that the Baja is
not a 'truck'. I can still do almost
everything I need to do, and many things
I couldn't do before. The Baja is just
plain fun, especially with the 5-speed.
It really hugs the road and gives you a
feel of control. There's plenty of
power in the 4-cyl with the 5-speed
(drove the automatic and it felt a
little sluggish), and the mileage beats
most competitors. The back seat isn't
great, but I sit in the front! Have not
regretted this purchase.
Bed extender, moon roof, pass-through
Remove center console in back seat.
More comfortable back seats. Radio
reception leaves something to be desired.
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
This is a car I would recommend to
anybody . I flat out love it.
Leather is top notch!
turbo,okay but it would cut into gas
mileage. If you don't have a Vette,
then you can get your Jollys with the
