This is our second Subaru this year. My

is car like and the seating is
comfortable ( front ) back seat is fine
for kids or adults on a short trip.
Mileage is improving with each fill up.
Get a lot of comments

wont be sorry

Bench seat in rear with no console.

2004 Subaru Baja Turbo AWD 4dr Crew Cab (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I am sold big time. I bought an all
silver, manual, turbo and boy can she
fly- and a real eye catcher. This car
is an absolute blast to drive.
It is a sports car with the ability to
perform all the functions of a small
truck. Who knew!?
It is a four seater but lots of room
and very comfortable and the sound
system is excellent. I wanted
something reliable, fun and versatile
and this car is all of that. They make
a cover for the backend so essentially
you can store stuff like a trunk or
use it for hauling anything- the
versatility is insane. Suburu
reliability, amazingly fun, AWD! and
overall versatility of the vehicle -
all at an amazing price.



Best Features

Overall sports car feel of manual, turbo version. Accutremnets: AWD, antilock brakes, great 6 CD in dash stereo (6 speakers in the Turbo), sunroof, and overall versatility of the car.


Worst Features

Cup holders in tough place when operating a manual. Remote lock/unlock- sometimes need to press multiple times to unlock.

2004 Subaru Baja Turbo AWD 4dr Crew Cab (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 4A)


Review

I have had the baja turbo for a little
over a week now. I must say this
caruck (pronounced car'-uck) is a great
vehicle. All reviews that I read
before buying this truck mentioned the
lack of space overall when mostly
compared to a pickup. I bought this
vehicle for the little home projects
that i want to do, my active lifestyle
(biking/hockey, etc) and this vehicle
suits my needs well. You get the
vesatility of being able to go to home
depot or you get the great feeling of
leaving everyone in the dust off of the
start/w/turbo around the neighborhood.
...steering wheel always hitting my leg
on the way in and to cumbersome to
raise and lower.


Best Features

Engine (turbo), autoshift, versatility of storage space, sweet cloth and leather trim of the seats/interior.


Worst Features

tilt steering movements (easier to move, and more movement (higher and lower)...wish it had an option to add radio controls on the steering wheel. That's it for now though.

2004 Subaru Baja Sport AWD 4dr Crew Cab (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Replaced an old trusty Ford Ranger, and
worried about the fact that the Baja is
not a 'truck'. I can still do almost
everything I need to do, and many things
I couldn't do before. The Baja is just
plain fun, especially with the 5-speed.
It really hugs the road and gives you a
feel of control. There's plenty of
power in the 4-cyl with the 5-speed
(drove the automatic and it felt a
little sluggish), and the mileage beats
most competitors. The back seat isn't
great, but I sit in the front! Have not
regretted this purchase.


Best Features

Bed extender, moon roof, pass-through panel.


Worst Features

Remove center console in back seat. More comfortable back seats. Radio reception leaves something to be desired.
