Have been planning on a new vehicle (Dakota/Ridgeline) and had ruled out the Baja based on a test drives in the two mentioned above, mainly because of room and comfort, and the relaiively low price of gas. However, my first choice was a Baja, and, now with gas prices approaching the stratosphere, would probably be my best bet (short term/long term) until W is gone & there are more economical options for highway fuel efficiency. I just found out that the Baja may not be around much longer, so, might be forced to decide now before there all gone.** First choice is usually your best bet.** Hope they (SOA) change their mind.

Go with the Baja. They have amazing reliability, utility and performance (especially with the turbo). If you are looking to pick one up sooner than later, I know Bill Kolb Jr. Subaru in Orangeburg, NY has a few on the lot as i was there this morning. A really good friend of mine works there, his name is Dominic. He has been able to beat anyone else's pricing on Subarus for a very long time. Just tell him Mike Trevor sent you and he will make you his first priortiy.
As far as the Dakota goes, that's a full blown pickup truck with a truck chassis and large dimensions. That would be a great truck for you if you plan on doing any major off roading, hauling heavy payloads or towing. Otherwise, I would veer away from the Dakota. It's a great truck, but only if you need what it has to offer. The Ridgeline is a new to the market truck as I'm sure you know. I'm sure, being a Honda, that it's reliability is superb. As with the Dakota, it is still rather large is size, but its payload and towing capabilities aren't as good as with the Dakota. The Ridgeline has some great features, but if fuel milage, reliability and performance are of your main concern, then stick to the subie, if towing and payload capabilities are your main objective, than go towards the Dakota/Ridgeline.

Hello... Can anyone give me some info about the 2006 Outback... I'm thinking of buying one and going to go take a look at one for sale this Sunday... how reliable are these auto's? What are the weak points? Do they get good gas mileage?? I've had honda's/toyota's in the past... thought I'd give Subaru product a try.. any info would be appreciated... Do you think $22k is too much for this year of vehicle... it has power everything, heated seats, cd, etc... Thanks again...
