Perfect match for my active lifestyle
By Mike Custodio on
Vehicle2005 Subaru Baja Turbo AWD 4dr Crew Cab (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 4A)
ReviewBought my turbo baja with 56k on it, and racked up 10k in 6 months. While there is both positive and negative attitude about it, the turbo baja matches my lifestyle perfectly. It excels in Back country roads, carrying kayak, mtn bikes, and occasional landscaping items. Performance and handling excel that of a true truck. I love trucks, but I love my baja better. Downsides: Get the Bed ext. Turbo lag and reluctant downshifts sap power. But once you get going, your gone. Frequent oil changes: every 3,000 miles for turbos. My ABS unit somehow decided to fail. It will cost $1200 to replace, dealership unsure what caused the failure. Otherwise, this subie matches my lifestyle and driving habits
Best FeaturesTurbo power, usable bed for recreational gear, 8.4 inches of ground clearance, exceptional fun handling. More fun than my past true trucks.
Worst FeaturesBaja's no longer in production. But, Subaru needs to eliminate 4 gear auto and turbo lag.
