2004 Subaru Baja Turbo 2.5 turbo from North America
Baja can do anything (within reason)
Nothing really wrong, besides little plastic clips breaking inside.
I have owned my Baja Turbo coming up on a year now. Awesome car. Initially, I bought the car for little hauls, computers, while still having a lot of space for fellow employee commutes to work. MPG isn't great, but when you buy a turbo, you have to ignore that factor. The Baja can be used for larger items; you just have to think a little in advance to get the items in there.
ITEM: 2 250CC Dirt bikes in the bed. With a little engineering and welding, I have gotten two full size dirt bikes in the bed and not hanging past the tailgate. See picture. http://upload7.postimage.org/515158/photo_hosting.html
ITEM: 8 Sheets of 3/4 Plywood; 18 2x4x10; 6 2x4x12 using some of my ramp mounts, tailgate down, bed-extender on, all wood placed angle up toward the front of the car. Plywood on top of that and winched down.
I love my Baja. Stay on top of changing the oil (synthetic) and a tune up every once in a while, and the car will last forever.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

No means to be insulting, but I thought turbo models started in 2004? Or maybe your Baja is built in late 2003 and branded as a 2004?

Most cars are manufactured the year before the stated year. A 2003 manufacture year is "2004".
Look on the panels on your own car for that verification.
