My second Subaru bought specifically to get around during wonderful midwest winters. Driving in several inches today and no slipping during stops or starts. Feels extermely secure in less than perfect conditions. The ground clearance and cabin space is greater than my RS 2.5 2 door. The headroom is a little tight because of the retracting moonroof. The leather seats are very comfortable and the dual front-rear consoles are a plus.
Since it is a 2.5 Turbo model with sport shift, performance is race car like. Had all the fluids changed soon after purchase. Have fixed a couple minor interior-exterior broke trim items. Have also added deep grove floor mats available from Subaru.
Multi-CD changer is a little picky about what it will play and no MP3s. Added a cigar lighter iPod FM adapter to add MP3 playback capability.
Warmer weather will allow greater use of the pick-up bed for bikes and hauling.

Great Car, Fun to Drive. 4th Subaru

I have owned 3 previous Subaru's. The Baja did not disappoint. The 5 speed Turbo gives plenty of acceleration in any gear, the 4 wheel drive keeps the power on the road, the raised nature of the truck gives the extra ground clearance so driving on unplowed roads is not a problem, nice wraparound leather sports seats give the interior a touch of class.
The unique combination of 4 doors and a truck bed made it a great ride to drive to work in and great utility for play on the weekend. Plenty of compliments and envy from friends and strangers alike.

This car has saved my life
on July 24, 2017
Ive owned a subaru baja for 13 years and am just now deciding to part with it. It has kept me safe through 3 accidents and countless other events such as snow storms and being stuck in the mud. Had I not lived in a city so prone to bump and scratches, you would not know that this thing is as old as it is. Requires good maintenance but if you take of it, it will take care of you.
