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


Review

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


Best Features

Its a Subaru..AWD


Worst Features

Bench seat in rear with no console.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Overall sports car feel of manual, turbo version. Accutremnets: AWD, antilock brakes, great 6 CD in dash stereo (6 speakers in the Turbo), sunroof, and overall versatility of the car.


Worst Features

Cup holders in tough place when operating a manual. Remote lock/unlock- sometimes need to press multiple times to unlock.

2004 Subaru Baja Crew Cab Turbo AWD 4dr Crew Cab (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 4A)


Review

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.


Best Features

Engine (turbo), autoshift, versatility of storage space, sweet cloth and leather trim of the seats/interior.


Worst Features

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.

2004 Subaru Baja Crew Cab Sport AWD 4dr Crew Cab (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

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.


Best Features

Bed extender, moon roof, pass-through panel.


Worst Features

Remove center console in back seat. More comfortable back seats. Radio reception leaves something to be desired.

Review

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.


Best Features

Leather is top notch!


Worst Features

turbo,okay but it would cut into gas mileage. If you don't have a Vette, then you can get your Jollys with the Turbo.
