Newly issued recall.

Just in case y'all didn't know, just about everything in the legacy platform, including all bajas, are being recalled again for the same takata airbag problem. Apparently when they were recalled a few years ago, a whole heap of the dealerships used back stock of the same faulty part. Here's the arti...

Re: Oil consumption seems excessive.

Ok. Did what Zubaja said and check that dipstick, and oh crap it's dry. Might explain why a 6 month old clutch feels like a 6 year old one. I got oil for it and can put in more, but don't have the ability to perform a system cleaning myself or even draining the old. I feel a little odd that I've ask...

Re: Oil consumption seems excessive.

It does go away when I press the clutch to about the 3/4 position (which is where the gears disengage normally). Sounds like a rythmic scraping. Actually, sounds almost exactly like 'waited to long to replace brake pads sound' just at a higher rate and occurrs when vehicle is stationary. --> my desc...

Re: Oil consumption seems excessive.

Sadly I don't do my own work. So my answer to most of your questions is 'i don't know'. But thanks for the list of what to check! I get that having a dry dipstick is bad, which is why I track miles carry extra oil. The major flaw in system is me remembering to check every so often. .. It started mak...

Oil consumption seems excessive.

What is normal oil consumption for a Baja? I have an 06 NA 5-spd and I've never been able to fully pin down it's rate of consumption, but it seems to be about 1700-2000 miles before the dipstick is dry. My truck currently has 120k miles, but this issue has existed since I purchased it in 2011 with 4...

Re: Shopping for Baja, choices NA vs Turbo, MT vs AT

I've had an 06 NA manual for about 8 years now. In that time I've lived in Western MA, SE Michigan, Northern Illinois and Central AZ. My Baja is a fun car to drive, but it is by no measure a fast or powerful car. Driving in the mountains in northern AZ I couldn't keep to highway speeds on the uphill...

Re: Pulsing / surging Baja engine

This is gonna sound silly, and the issue prolly wasn't a factor in what eventually happened; but The '99 outback I had in high school had a similar issue. It idled 800ish high, then would chill out after about 30 seconds, then spike back up. I never found out what caused it. That car eventually died...

Re: 2003 Wheel for sale

If an 03 wheel is the same as an 06, I'd be interested.

I'm near the palace of Auburn hills.

Re: Dog DeMuro reviews the Baja

I saw that review and immediately thought that the borrowed Baja belonged to someone in this forum. I think I recall seeing a post about cosmetic customization of painting the grill, headlight interior trim and such. The bit about the sunroof seemed odd because it's the same size as the one my 99 ou...

All I can say is that if this happens, PM me because EVERYTHING I have will be for sale and I want to talk to this person :D Yeah yeah, laugh it up. I did preface my statements the disclaimer that I'm a noob who is very possibly completely wrong. My only data point was what I paid for mine, and tha...

Re: what is my Baja worth?

For curiosity I plugged your specs into Kelly blue book car pricer. So I can actually recommended NOT using that pricer. The number it spat out would make sense for an 06 outback, or Forester, but not a Baja. Also, when I first read your post I somehow missed a bunch of it. The $18k I paid was for a...

Re: what is my Baja worth?

Unicorn.

I'm not the knowledge one on the forum, but 7 years ago I paid $18,000 for one very similar but with no turbo.

So I'd say around $23k-25k

But again, I've only got the one data point, so I could be way off.

Re: 2006 Baja Turbo Questions.

Where in Michigan is it from? I'm a SE Michigan native and we've had some severe flooding problems in last couple years. So have your inspector look for signs of flood damage if it's in Detroit/Ann Arbor/Warren region. Not all our roads are bad. Just the ones within the cities/suburban. There's a wo...

Re: MO: Garage Cleanout - Lots of Gen 3 parts

Prolly all the better. My transmission went out last week that started a mad rush to fix everything . The truck is in the shop right now getting new brakes and struts so I guess i stopped needing them yesterday. Didn't want to put off maintenance any longer for just a chance at cheaper parts. I'll p...
