2003 Subaru Baja Crew Cab Sport AWD 4dr Crew Cab (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

My Baja has been very reliable so far.
I have put many miles on it in my
first year of owning it, due greatly
to how fun it is to drive. It gets
good gas mileage. So far the only
thing I wasn't able to haul in it were
sheets of 4x8 plywood. This vehicle
was exactly what I wanted, the
functionality of a truck with the feel
of a car.


Best Features

I love the standard features that came with my Baja. The sunroof, the fog lights, AWD, CD player, bigger tire size, and Baja floor mats, all added to the overall sporty feel of it. I also like the fact the back seat folds down to give more cargo space.


Worst Features

The window controls need to be illuminated for night driving.

2003 Subaru Baja Crew Cab Sport AWD 4dr Crew Cab (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I own a 03 Baja. I have an engine
knock that just won't go away. I have
reported, with every trip to the
dealer, and I get the same
response, "We know about but there is
anything to do about it. It is the way
the engine is mounted." Sounds like a
lot of BS to me.
I also have complained about a damp
musty smell, like wet towels left in
the sun, and again they cannot find the
problem.
I plan to sell my Baja ASAP

Review

Owning this vehicle now for one year
has been a terrific experience. Good
fuel economy, NO reliability issues at
all. Fun to drive and gets a lot of
looks. Interior storage is a bit tight
at times. Comfortable seating in all 4
places. Dealer replaced front brakes
under warranty at 22000 miles. The
30000 mile service at the dealer is a
bit pricey for a 4cyl car. Cold a/c in
summer and decent heat in winter. Easy
to maintain and keep clean


Best Features

very functional fog lights and its great that the rear plate drops down for driving with the tailgate down!


Worst Features

Subaru added a turbo option for 2004 to add more power which I would like. I also see you can have heated seats now when leather interior is purchased.
