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


Analyzed hundreds of vehicles for:
Child safety; Appearance; Fun;
Economy; Performance; 4-doors; and
cargo capacity. Came down to four
vehicles: Subaru Baja; Honda Element;
Toyota 4Runner and RAV4. Baja came
out on top for me. Local Subaru
dealership beat my credit union on
financing. Also got the '03 Baja well
below invoice. Driving the
Baja confirms the right choice:
AWD, superb handling, tight, solid,
and quiet. Fuel economy that is
good. Audio upgrade sounds
great, and more useful features than a
Swiss Army knife. Work for a tech
company with a parking lot full of
grey BMW and Benz. Glad I didn't go
down that expensive and
typical route.

Best Features

AWD, fun, unique, handsome, leather interior, sound system, nimble handling, 4-doors, cargo area & extension. (Free roadside assistance for 3 years).

Worst Features

Turbo should be even more fun for buyers of the '04 models. Factory available hard cover for the cargo area. Bring back the safari seats in the rear (great for eating lunch outside).
