Re: Yellow Turbo?

There are no yellow turbos from the factory. So, it's either an NA with a turbo hood, someone painted another color factory turbo yellow, or someone added a turbo to an NA.

Re: Would Subaru ever make a new Baja?

I really doubt it. Before they discontinued them, they were pretty adament they wouldn't be continuing to make them. If they had bothered to continue to advertise them, they would have sold a lot more of them. I don't see many Tribecas anymore either, although that makes me very happy since that hor...

Re: Yellowblaze=blueblaze?

I don't mind. We got 8k trade in, kept the bed extender (the 06 had the brackets but no extender) and got the 06 for 17k. The 03 was a touch under 90k, needed brakes, struts and tires. The 06 was still under factory warranty (about 25k miles), had the bed net, tonneau (with the corners only slighly ...

Re: Yellowblaze=blueblaze?

So, our old 03 sold within 2 weeks. I guess we'll just have to wait and see if the new owners show up. Funny, the 06 we bought was on their lot since last summer. So long resale red, there's now resale yellow?? The 03 had 90k (almost) on it and was listed at 11k and sold in a snap. Granded it was in...

Re: Are Roll Bars real or are they just appearance bars

They aren't "roll bars" (which is why Subaru calls them "sport bars") however I believe they do add to the structural ridgity of the vehicle. Since Bajas aren't full framed, I think they used them to tie things together a bit-but I could be wrong, that could have been the STX. I know someone with a ...

Re: Sports Lights for Baja

We didn't wire them to use while driving, but if you click the e-brake up one click they will work and it doesn't seem to engage the e-brake. We've done it two or three times while driving and it didn't seem to engage at all. Found that trick from someone else with the lights, so it must be common t...

Re: Yellowblaze=blueblaze?

Thanks. That's one good thing about trading it in a different state, we'll probably not see it again. Now we have to decide what to do with this one. We're thinking of taking the bars off the roof rack and adding a swoosh (DH wants yellow, I'm thinking a shade or two off of the blue). I have to admi...

Re: Yellowblaze=blueblaze?

I'll stay yellowblaze for a bit until I see if the new owners of our 03 show up. I've got to come up with something blue related. blueblaze was a joke, as in "what in blue blazes is that thing?!". Looking at that pic, it looks more like Regal blue than Atlantic blue. Must be the overcast sky mixed w...

Re: What would you change if you could?

Build them again, based on the new outback!! There'a an old photoshop floating around the net based on a black 05/06 and it looks SWEET. Seriously though, a soft cover that didn't tear in the corners almost instantly. An all weather package as an option, not just in Canada! A hard tonneau option, no...

Re: rough ride, particularly over bumps

Our 03 started to ride rougher as it got higher miles. Granted, we used it for what it was built for-off roading, mudding, hauling. Could be struts. We just traded it for an 06 because it had 89k and we wanted a Baja for as long as we could that was under warranty. I'd say have the struts, strut mou...

Yellowblaze=blueblaze?

Well, it had to happen sometime. Sadly, the Baja was our daily, and therefore racked up the miles. We rely on it too much to have a DD out of warranty. So, today, we traded it in. Looks like I need to change my sn now. To be fair, "yellowblaze" never really was for the Baja-we were originally lookin...

Re: Is this a bad buy?..help me please

From a private seller, that's not a bad deal at all. Tell them to go online and look at what these are selling for. I'm looking for a low mileage MY06 and they are asking more for them now with more miles than I paid for my 03 when I bought it in 04!!

Re: Highest miles on a Baja (so far!)?

Our 03 sport has almost 89k on it, bought in December of 04 with 2200 on it (ex-exec demo). One weird incident which was covered under the extended warranty-a pully sheared off and threw the belts. Drove it home (less than a mile) and called Subaru. Had a wrecker out shortly after, and had it back t...
