Goodbye Old ML, Hello B9 Tribeca Ltd 7
By L. Frank on


2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca Ltd. 7-Pass. 4dr SUV AWD w/DVD, Nav, Gray Int. (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


So impressed by test driving B9 Tribeca Ltd. 7 passenger we bought it 2 days later; our first non German make in 25 years. Went from ML to B9 - after comparing every detail interior, performance and fact that almost every option is included in 7 passenger Ltd price were options on others sold us. Especially comfort, handling ease, safety feats. Not as tall as ML, Lexus GX470, Z3 we tested but what we got for price -- impressive. Hope to embrace B9 unusual exterior styling. Interior superb- driver's "cockpit" design, ease in reading well positioned dash instruments. Good mileage, great cornering & handling, smooth ride, A+ rear seat comfort & A/C controls & 20k less than ML with equal options.

Favorite Features

Dash instrument placement & ease in reading; navigation easy and accurate, driver's seat with lumbar control, rear seat legroom & A/C vents plus controls plus there's even vents at 3 row seats/cargo --great for pets, Handling, cornering, and control. Optional "puddle lights" are GREAT!

Suggested Improvements

Need a bigger glove box (won't hold leather case with manuals - this is the only thing we could find to complain about. Exterior styling is kind of unusual looking for an SUV but it will grow on us (we hope). Need to warn driver when DVD screen down; cannot see out of rear view mirror!
