2006 Subaru Baja Sport 4dr Crew Cab AWD SB (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

I bought this Baja to save gas over my Chev full size pick-up. WRONG MOVE. At first it got really great mileage (almost 30 mpg on hwy) but then I took it to the dealer for its first oil change. BIG BIG MISTAKE. After that day it starting getting 17 mpg in town and 20 mpg on hwy. I took it back to the dealer (02/07) and the mechanic said no codes showed bad and therefore he couldn't work on the vehicle. The dealer offered me $18k trade in for a new Chevy truck and I guess that's about the best I can expect to get. Such a great concept vehicle but I can see now why Subaru never sold very many of them. Why drive a tiny truck if it uses as much fuel as a comfortable one? Save your money!

Favorite Features

Such a great IDEA. Shame it doesn't perform as promised. Great at first but now with 6,600 miles I can't wait to get rid of it.

Suggested Improvements

Don't allow dealers to flash these vehicles!
