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'....

2009 Subaru TribecaSUV nuts - , 04/04/2014
We have the 2009 limited with 3rd row seat for about 2 years now and have put over about 20k on it. Though some don't care much about the exterior.... In my book it is a solid contender. The handling is a bit more sporty and the suspension is gonna be on the stiffer side but boy... This crossover/SUV handles. More like your European counterpart than your other Japanese brands. It is very reliabille and dependeble. It sits just right as far as the heights and ride much like a car. It feels solid and SAFE on the road especially with our little ones in the back. The e subaru legendary symmetry all wheel drive puts 40/60 split so you get that rear wheel drive feel. It handles all fairly well in all types of weather. The only "con" that I have is the MPG and the fuel tank is slightly smaller for a size of this beast. I get around avg 18mpg combine and about 200-220 per tank only. Otherwise.. You will enjoy this SUV for years to come.
Hope this helps.
Decent car--just maybe not worth the price.

See review below. It may seem like silly stuff, but the GPS was a big deciding factor and I have found it to be very frustrating to use and completely not user friendly.
