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


Let's see...the transmission went out at 3,000 miles. The carpet had to be replaced because of a poorly designed mat-holder. The trim is crooked, the mileage stinks, the warranty offered by the company is not comparable with other manufacturers. Should I keep going? Oh I suggested a friend buy a Subaru as well and her review would be similar to mine...NOT TOO HOT! Together, our invoice paperwork for all the trips we've made to have items examined/repaired could reforest a small country.

Best Features

It LOOKS good...but looks really aren't everything.

Worst Features

Redesign the floor-mat holder, drivers side. Make sure the transmission is a better-designed transmission. Include a more extensive warranty with purchase, rather than charge an arm and a leg for extended warranty. Retrain the dealership in Dallas...that's a good thought.

Well here I am two years later and an additional 30 k miles. I did have to replace the clutch at 95,000 (possibly my fault) but thats it. I have the turbo model and its been flawless!
