2006 Subaru Baja Problems

Engine -- Verified

The head gasket has a high failure rate due to cooling system problems. Subaru is aware of the problem and has extended the warranty to 8 years/100k miles on many vehicles.

A matter of some three minutes between smelling something burning (and, thankfully, pulling onto the shoulder of I-81 to investigate) and the vehicle bursting into flames. Took 4 firetrucks 45 minutes to put it out, at which point it had literally melted into the pavement, which presented quite a challenge to the tow truck driver who came to remove the carcass. Fire dept couldn't be certain of cause, but best guess was an electrical fire orig...

I have 178,000 on my 2006. I saw they extended the warranty to 100,000 or 8 years. Is it whichever comes first? My head gasket is going out.

2006 Subaru Baja Reviews

i like this car but ther are lots subaru cheepened, and as with the 98 to 2002 head gasket issue subaru dosnt stand behind thier product , the manual trans has tooo high 1st gear and always stalls when i leave my driveway on a snow day,also driving lights go off when switching to high beams this sucks and is dangerous. also drink holder is in the way of shifter and e brake, poor lay out. also park /neutral switch went out at 80k mi ,why it has a park switch on a stick nobody knows!

LOVED my Baja--the perfect vehicle for the Western NC mountain terrain, good on gas, plus the handy back compartment for hauling a bale of hay for the garden or taking the trash to the dump--that is, until it burst into flames on I-81 coming into Syracuse last week. I was lucky to get out. Took 4 firetrucks, and literally melted into the pavement. "Nightmare" does not begin to describe it. Fire inspectors determined it was an electrical fire originating with the blower (fan) that circulates air through the vents. OMG.

All I can say is I LOVE MY CAR!!!! I was thinking of trading my car in but not sure what i wanted...sitting at a light one day i saw a yellow (not to crazy about that color) subaru baja pass me and i followed it so that i could find out the make and model....checked the internet and there happen to be one at a nearby dealership....and the best thing is its blue...my favorite color....sad to hear they stopped making them....

overall I am quite satisfy with this Baja. Good acceleration and good performance.
