this has to be the worse car i ever owned. and would never purchase another Subaru ever again and would suggest that you never purchase one you would save more money on repairs if you got a mercies Benz or a BMW cause it will cost the same to repair.

I bought this car 2 months ago with 87k on it, and have been loving it!! with a 50 mile commute each way to work, its quiet & very comfortable. i've done some light off-roading and have no complaints. my fiancee prefers to take the subie when ever we go anywhere together. no complaints on the 25 mpg. off line acceleration could be better, and the steering column could be a little longer (im tall and have to reach a bit)
Overall it beats the pants off the 2001 neon i traded in on it!!!
so far this is the best looking, 2nd best performing (1998 pontiac grand prix gt was faster) i have owned.
I really love this vehicle!

Bought my turbo baja with 56k on it, and racked up 10k in 6 months. While there is both positive and negative attitude about it, the turbo baja matches my lifestyle perfectly. It excels in Back country roads, carrying kayak, mtn bikes, and occasional landscaping items. Performance and handling excel that of a true truck. I love trucks, but I love my baja better. Downsides: Get the Bed ext. Turbo lag and reluctant downshifts sap power. But once you get going, your gone. Frequent oil changes: every 3,000 miles for turbos. My ABS unit somehow decided to fail. It will cost $1200 to replace, dealership unsure what caused the failure. Otherwise, this subie matches my lifestyle and driving habits
New features this year include a 12-volt power outlet in the console, a net pocket on the rear seat back and pre-wiring for roof-mounted rally lights. The leather package now includes a hard bed cover.
The problem seems to be with the Baja and not the trailer. I've heard that it could be a ground problem but where do you start? Is there a test kit of some kind out there to help me diagnose the probl...
