Swiss Army Knife of vehicles
By D J Smith on


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


I've had my Baja for about 5 months,
so far it has been perfect, no
problems at all. I have the non-Turbo
four cylinder which I am very happy
with. The gas mileage is better than
I expected, acceleration is fine. The
best feature of the Baja is it's
versatility. True, it doesn't have a
full-size pick-up bed but with the
extender I haven't missed that. I
really like the fact that I can move
my kids home from college, have the
bed packed full, and still have room
for 4 people. Intially I didn't like
the two-tone color scheme (red and
silver) but now that I have had it for
awhile I love it.

Best Features

The ride, the handling, the seats, all- wheel drive system, flexible pick-up bed.

Worst Features

The back seat should seat three, instead of two people. Initally I was unhappy that Subaru didn't offer a locking bed cover but now they offer two: a fiberglass version and a padded vinyl version. I recently purchased the padded vinyl version, it seems fine.
