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


What a great vehicle! Have had it for
3 months and love it. The bed is way
more functional than it appears at
first, especially with the bed
extender. We can easily take scuba
gear, ball gear, bikes, kayaks, and
skis wherever we want to go without
using huge amounts of gas. The
interior is comfortable, feature-rich,
intuitive, and stylish. There is a
solid feel that is not apparent in
many vehicles in its price range. The
AWD is a dream and it's fun to drive.
Take it from the ones who actually own
and drive the Baja every day-it's a
great value that should bring a smile
to your face.

Best Features

AWD, 4-door (4 adults do fit comfortably), bed extender, gas mileage, hydraulic hard top, overall vehicle size, color, exterior and interior styling, comfort, ride, handling in all weather, and darn it, it's just plain cute!

Worst Features

As everyone indicates, a bigger engine. This should not be a showstopper, however, because it does perform quite well. Would also like to see heated seats. The manual transmission can be a bit too sensitive at times, but that's better than not being sensitive enough.
