Review of the 2005 Subaru Baja

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

  • Safety

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

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

Excellent work truck

Vehicle: 2005 Subaru Baja Sport AWD 4dr Crew Cab (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

290,000 miles in 5.5 yrs. 90% of the time with a generator and tools in the back. Minimal maintenance, record of 220,000 miles before 1st belt change. AWD with FL rain, wonderful! 24 mpg with full load. Very satisfied. A little worried about inevitable future maintenance due to mileage.




Love my baja

Recently drove 4,200 miles in a week and enjoyed every one of them.




Baja fun

Vehicle: 2005 Subaru Baja Sport AWD 4dr Crew Cab (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

I'm finding the Baja to have great versitaity and fun to drive. I have never seen one in my local area and am enjoying the inquisitive looks I am getting. It's a great vehicle that handles like a car but provides small truck capabilities.




Love my toy baja

Vehicle: 2005 Subaru Baja Sport AWD 4dr Crew Cab (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Bought my Baja to replace a 98 Isuzu Pickup. This is the best trar, (truck/car - thats what my wife calls it), that I ever owned. Power everything standard. I drive about 1,000 miles a week and feel save and secure. Great on the highway and fun in town. A real head turner. Live in FL and with the bad rains, have no problem. No pull when hitting puddles. Drives true and straight. Will recommend any Subaru to anyone. Can't beat AWD.

I am new in the Subaru area. I bought a Baja to play with. I like it very much, but it is to early to really give an experienced report. Will do that later. So far it has been what I expected.




Head turning winner

Where else can you get a four seater, four door, pick-up with extended bed and roof rack that is a head turner every where you go? All this and be rated as a passenger car for insurance? I've never had a problem and get through Buffalo winters with ease.
