| ||General comments?||This is a lot of car (or truck)! Tons of standard equipment: pwr drs, locks, keyless,pwr moonroof,dark tint, 6 disc changer, ABS and AWD to name a few. Full-time all wheel drive makes a world of difference in this vehicle on dry or slippery roads. It handles well, has an aggressive stance and distinctive styling. Crash test ratings will put your mind at ease, as will the brake response. The bed is big enough for most casual uses (ex. dogs can ride very comfortably). Best of all, I love to drive it! The motor and suspension are a delight a-la the performance sedan engineering. The turbo replaces the ho-hum power of the naturally aspirated 2.5 with the much more robust power of a variably valve timed, turboed, twin over head cammed engine that has been well proven in the STI and Forester XT. |
Compared to the arcane suspension technology found under most truck-utes, the independent suspension of the Baja is delightfully quiet, responsive and now allows for 8.4 inches of ground clearance. Probably most noticable is the Baja's easy maneuverability in jungles of both the urban and rural sorts.
If you tow or haul large amounts of weight, the Baja's 2400 lbs. of capacity will not suit your needs, but if your truck bed only gets the occasional kanine passenger, camping equipment, drumset or HomeDepot loot like mine, the Baja will be just right.
