New "Brat" is a blast!

Vehicle2003 Subaru Baja AWD 4dr Crew Cab (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewI was intrigued by the Baja from the
first Subaru "teasers" in the Spring of
2002. After test driving the Baja next
to a couple of compact pickups, I took
it home. I was a little worried about
whether it would be practical or even
useful as a "truck," but after six
months, I've enjoyed every minute of
owning it. Handling is great. I had
the rotor vibration problems mentioned
in another review, but Subaru replaced
all four and it rides fine now. It's a
little underpowered, but still moves
when needed. It has a VERY long list
of standard features. It's been useful
for small and medium-sized loads.
Overall, I couldn't be happier with it.
Best FeaturesVersatility (especially with bed extender), amazing handling, I even like the funky looks of the exterior. Interior is VERY comfortable.
Worst FeaturesA version with Subaru's six cylinder would be ideal, for hauling and towing capacity. Larger switchback opening. Winter package (heated seats and outside mirrors) would be nice, too.
