Could not have purchased a better vehicle. It handles really well and we have received many compliments. It is a well made car. My stepson was so impressed with the vehicle, he purchased a Subaru also.
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!
Best car I've owned - never owned foreign
2008 Subaru Tribecanyg fan - 05/17/2011
I never bought a foreign car, but when Saturn went out of business and I looked at the price of the Ford Edge compared to the Tribeca, I started doing some research. I was impressed by the gas mileage, the bells and whistles and the appearance and most of all the price.
During my research, I saw some bad reviews about the mirrors being in bad spots or being to small and leaving blind spots. Let me assure you, that is NOT the case. I'm only 5'2" and I don't have any problems with blind spots; there are even "cut outs" in the front side windows so you have additional LOS.
This is the best car I've ever owned. I get 17 mpg on average and have to drive in rush hour traffic every day. I just took a 400 mile road trip and got 23 mpg on the interstates. The seats are very comfortable and it's very roomy, even for my grown kids in the back seat. Also, they love that ALL seats in the car recline. I recommend this car!
