2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca Ltd. 5-Pass. 4dr SUV AWD w/Gray Int. (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Love the vehicle but.... Resonance vibrations when holding ~30 mph. BAD buffeting when the rear windows only are down and I do mean discomfort to the eardrums type buffeting! CD player has already failed mechanical failure message displays (mechanical error) not noted in the manual! Dealer told us not to slam the back gate - it would break a cheap plastic latch - this was told to us after the purchase as we were leaving . :-/ Note that all the doors do shut with grace, very easily with little noise, just a little thing but another example of the inconsistent quality of components. Weak radio of Wal-Mart quality - not a boomer by no stretch of the imagination.

Best Features

The cockpit, especially at night with the dimming thumb dial on full brightness you get the feeling this machine is ready for launch. Ya gotta see this at night on full brightness if you need another itty bitty point to finalize your decision it has to be impressive from adjacent vehicles.

Worst Features

Sound system - uck as is big time. Subaru should apologize to current owners and then upgrade at no charge these Tribecas. Whew. Go buy a VW - the way the entry system is designed, it is impossible to lock your keys in the car - other cool features abound on VW's.
