Great fun to drive

2005 Subaru Baja Sport AWD 4dr Crew Cab (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Stylish good looks, great handling, and
a very fast motor make this car the
most fun vehicle I have ever owned. I
test drove the non-turbo and found the
engine to be lacking. The downside of
the turbo is poorer gas milage and you
must use premium fuel, but the vehicle
is extraordinarily responsive,
particularly on hills.

I drove the car on a trip of 300 miles
and it is a bit wearing over the long
haul because of the light weight
compared to a sedan which I previously
owned, however in town the vehicle is a
real blast to drive.

This is a great car for weekend lovers.

Worst Features

I would make the back window with a slide open feature and would put many more hooks in the pickup bed for lash down points. There are currently only four. The rear net should be more roomy to hold a bigger package. I would design a rear pickup bed box with a lock.
