Tribeca Loves/Hates

2008 Subaru Tribeca FirstTimeSubaruOwner - GA 10/05/2011

This is my first Subaru and overall I'm very happy with it! So I will only address the few concerns I think Subaru should tweek! 1st unbeknownst to me Subaru's are known not to have really good Navigation systems, So my question is: If you're going to charge a considerably large amount for this option and it has "known" issues, Why not FIX IT? If I was aware of this prior to shopping for my "perfect" tribeca, the process would have been alot quicker & cheaper! My advice to the future subaru owner: If you want a GPS, buy a portable one. Which are allot cheaper, and allot more accurate than my navigation unit! My 2nd and last concern is the leg room in the 3rd row is basically a JOKE! Unless you're a 3 ft. child, your legs will not FIT in the 3rd row. Plus, moving the 2nd row seats up is a trick in itself. So, even though I think it was a nice option ... it wasn't well designed. Thankfully, it's just me and my husband so we just keep the 3rd row layed down and use the extra cargo space. My advice: if you're going to need the 3rd row daily; buy a van. I hope this was helpful to the future shopper... These were things I would have liked to known about prior. That being said.. I would still buy a Tribeca, just a 5 seater, and no Nav. system.

Stable vehicle

2008 Subaru Tribeca Carl - Sykesville, MD 07/12/2014

Drives through just about anything. Stable, fair pickup, Heavy crossover that I average 20 MPG per tank. Safe for my young drivers.

2008 Subaru Tribeca - Florida 09/19/2011

The transmission in this car is awful! Either Subaru didn't match the transmission to the engine when they increased the horsepower in 2008, or it 's just a poor job of quality control. The transmission is slow to downshift causing a noticeable stutter, or vibration before it shifts. You can overcome this by either letting off the gas so that the rpm's drop allowing it to shift, or speeding up so that the transmission downshifts to provide more pickup, and higher rpm's. If you are driving in traffic, you do not have the ability to slow down or speed up when you need to; you have to live with the vibration. I have tried driving in "sport" mode, and using the "manual shift" option, but neither correct the problem. Do not buy a Tribeca!
