Drives through just about anything. Stable, fair pickup, Heavy crossover that I average 20 MPG per tank. Safe for my young drivers.
2008 Subaru TribecaA - Chicago08/12/2011
I had hoped my 10 yr old Lexus SUV would last a few years longer and that I could avoid trying to figure out what to buy next but the Lexus started having too many issues and I was forced into looking for a replacement. I researched for a 4WD SUV that would handle snow better than my Lexus yet have at least some of the luxuries. Nothing too big and I wanted a similar look without the pricetag. The more I read about the Tribeca, the better it sounded. I paid to have the car transferred to my local CarMax just from online info and pictures. I am very happy with it overall. I think it was a great value. I've gotten unsolicited compliments on it's appearance. The interior is spacious and attractive. I got the seat warmers I wanted. Sound system is good. The dash is user friendly and has a great techie look to it. Mileage could be better (about 20 MPG). The sensors for reverse are a bit annoying in that they're a bit random as you start backing up. Overall however, I got a lot of car for my money. Waiting to see how it handles snow.
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.
