I only wish Subaru would work on a power assist for the back hatch. As a small woman, I find it very heavy...am building some good arm muscles! That is about the only drawback...except that I had hoped for better mpg. I am getting about 13 mpg in the city and 18 on the highway. I was hoping for more. Now, I know this is a V6 and all wheel drive...but it should still get more mpg's.
It is very quiet and comfortable. My husband has mobility issues and we had to get a car that would be fitting for him and this works well!
We had a Subaru many years ago and it served us well...we look for a long relationship with 'Becky'....
Tribeca is Great
2011 Subaru TribecaTSIMP - , 05/28/2013
My wife and I just had a baby so we needed something with more room than our two door VW. The Tribeca has proven to be a great fit for us. Over all the Tribeca is a very comfortable and nice handling SUV. The dash is nicely appointed and everything is placed logically. The 3.6 engine has plenty of power and the handling is tight. The only two downsides would have to be that the third row seating is very small and I can't see us ever using it, and the gas mileage is not very good. The pros far out-way the cons for us, and I hope that this vehicle will last us for years to come as we have had wonderful experiences with other Subaru's in the past.
I ABSOLUTELY love this car. This was the only car I was looking for as my next Subaru. My Outback had reached its end of life (very sad- I actually cried). We also have twins and I needed something with the 3rd row seat. We found that the Tribeca has the power, the space and all of the features we need as an active sports-orientated family. We spend a lot of time skiing, and this car handles the snow like second-nature. I feel safe, my family feels safe and we are extremely happy with our purchase!
