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


Recommend to those who a) haul large
object every now and then (it is not a
pickup truck, it's a car with a small
bed), b) don't race (if you do, go with
Forester or WRX), c) live in higher
altitude (above 8,000 ft) and still
need responsive engine, d) not too
concerned about gas mileage (about 22
mpg), e) like the looks (at least able
to tolerate), and f) if your bike
costed more than $1500 and always
nervous when it is on roofrack. It's a
good alternative car for regular light
DIY Home Depot kind of folks.

Best Features

Accelerates in 10,000 ft elevation in 5th gear, able to haul mt bike on the bed (no more fear of bike ripped out of roof rack when passing semi), enough ground clearance for rocky trail heads, sleeper (porker) looks, cargo bed light (very very handy in night bike ride preparation).

Worst Features

loud wastegate flutter (almost sounds like grinding), cup holder location (rub cups with my elbow every time I shift), door panel weatherstrip came loose (build quality - replaced under warranty), low headroom (same as Legacy, not Outback).
