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.

This is a great road car for any conditions...solid and reliable. Although I have not taken it any great distance yet, I look forward to driving it out west, where conditions are more rugged than in the Midwest.
The only downside of this vehicle is the relatively low fuel economy...about 16 mph city and 21 country. But I'm not certain what else to expect for the higher performance of a six cylinder engine.

Heavy enough for towing but good gas mileage. We just went 2800 miles pulling UHaul 5x7 and got about 18.5 mph even across the Rockies.
Pretty, sleek and functional. Paid less than Blue Book, love the price and the extended CarMax Warranty.
