I was originally looking to buy a Honda
Element for its cargo abilities, but I
was really drawn to the look of the
Baja. The Baja is extremely comfortable
and loaded with features. I drive the
vehicle to and from work most of the
time, but It holds my family
comfortably. For home use, the Baja
works great. I can go to the home
inprovement center and get everything I
need into the Baja's cargo area by
using the pass through area. When I
need to carry larger loads, I tow a
8x10 trailer with little effort. I love
this little truck...and I get more than
20mpg everywhere I go..beat that.
The interior features are great:
leather, fit/finish, ergonomics. The
exterior looks great and I really like
the all wheel drive. I owned a full
size GMC before the Baja. The GMC had
more problems than I can mention. The
Baja is worry free and handles most of
my needs just fine.
I miss the towing capacity of a full
size truck, but the Baja handles all
the tasks I throw at it. The
acceleration was sluggish at first, but
it has broken in and become adequate.
If given the opportunity, I would have
bought the turbo version.
