I'm new to this forum, as I just bought my Baja in January.
I work in a company that has dealings with CR, and it's a hit-and-miss affair sometimes.
I've got no idea why the Baja would score less than something like a Legacy Outback, since they are nearly identical. However, I'm still learning, so I could be completely wrong.
All I know is that I love my Baja. First Subaru I've ever owned, and it's going to make a repeat customer out of me.
