It is easy to drive, great window viewing, and wonderful for groceries in the back, etc. It is perfect for taking to the beach. It is a very solid and well build vehicle which makes it exceptionally safe to drive. I will always have a Subaru Forester in my life!
The AWD goes great in any weather condition, that's why I got it. And it gets great mpg at around 33mpg. Smooth riding car and can switch to paddle shifters any time and really comes in handy driving in the snow, can control what gear its in so I can slow the vehicle down by downshifting instead of hitting the brakes and risk sliding. Overall I don't think you can beat this car for the price, especially if it lasts a long as older subarus do.
wonderful niche vehicle
2012 Subaru TribecaSkating Dad - Arlington Heights, IL09/18/2015
If you need 3 row utility but a minivan/Traverse/Explorer/Durango is too big, and you want some refinement but a sport/luxury sedan is not practical enough, the Tribeca is a great hybrid. There is a ton of room with the 3rd row folded, wide 2nd row for 3 with tons of legroom, and in a pinch or for smaller kids the 3rd row works fine, although it reduces 2nd row legroom. Nice crossover size and driving height. Great Harmon Kardon sound system option.
Our primary family car is a minivan and this could not replace that. But for a second car it works, is a lot more fun to drive, and of course the AWD is terrific.
