Fun car, turns heads
By Thomas on


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


For a young single homeowner living in
Minnesota, there isn't a better car in
the world! It turns heads, it hauls
lumber home and most furniture, and it
seats four confortably. Rear passengers
will complain about leg room. All wheel
drive makes the car a lot of fun to
drive on dry pavement, and easy to
handle on ice and snow. Everything
inthe truck feels solid - the doors, the
tailgate, interior parts. However, I
docked my truck a few points for
reliability because I am having problems
with clutch judder. Would like more
power but with a stick it's acceptable.

Best Features

Styling - I love getting complimented on my truck!

Worst Features

Extra power points inside, H-6 engine, Optional tonneau cover should be made easier to remove - fixed rear deck of toneau cover cuts into already limited hauling space. Shudder-free clutch. Sport lights should be made to fold down without the use of tools.
