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


I'm an officer in the Military
and I was moving to Alaska. While I
really wanted to buy the STi, a BMW
330 or a Chevy Avalanche, I couldn't
bring myself to part with $35,000+,
plus I was afraid the roads in Alaska
and Canada would be a little too much
for the first two. So, I opted for
the Baja Turbo. I'm very glad I did!
I immediatedly drove the vehicle
4K miles through Cali, Oreagon,
Washington and Canada. The manual
turbo is awesome! I only wish it had
the same new engine design as the
Outback and the Legacy.

Best Features

The Turbo is great! All the standard features, from the fog lights, to the cruise control, to the sun roof, to the standard 6 disk CD player. I really felt no need or guilt to invest in any of the options (other than the Turbo).

Worst Features

Add an option for GPS with onboard navigation, a digital display (possible the ability to play DVD's) and the option for satellite radio and you've got a winner!
