Great car, but ...

2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca Ltd. 5-Pass. 4dr SUV AWD w/Gray Int. (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Review
I was deciding between the Subaru and the Murano The Murano had *extremely* comfortable seats, but it just didn't have the reputation and trust of Subaru. The Subaru was a little cheaper than the Murano. So far, it has been wonderful. It is very stable on the road, and at fast highway speeds, it handles great. But mileage has been noticeably worse than the estimates. Granted, I am driving less than 35 MPH in bumper to bumper traffic in Los Angeles, but I am still only getting 16 MPG ... though freeway speeds get me 22-24 MPG. I'm bummed that the Nav is now offered in the Ltd 5-Pass. I wanted it in mine. Overall, quality is good, but many improvements can be made.
Favorite Features
1) Cockpit styling. 2) 6-disc MP3 CD. 3) Proven Subaru AWD. 4) Heated seats. 5) Airbags everywhere.
Suggested Improvements
1) Radio is weak. Needs more power. Maxes out prematurely at "40". 2) Always-on DC outlets. (Currently, ignition must be on). 3) Full-size spare. 4) Auto-unlock for driver's door. 5) Some how, some way, mileage MUST be better.
