We finally purchased the Tribeca a week ago and took it on about a 700 mile road trip through freeway (fast and nearly stopped heavy traffic), city (LA), desert and mountains and the vehicle performed superbly. Great looking and still rare here in So. California so the vehicle got lots of looks. The seats are great and we are coming from a Volvo. Interior is top quality and the dash and switchgear are perfect. Nav is brilliant. The car drives like a smaller vehicle than it is and responds very well to inputs for acceleration, turning and braking -- everything feels tight and capable. Quiet. You feel safe up a bit higher but will out handle any SUV out there. Avg 21 mpg so far -- just fine.
Looks, interior and handling. Cool lighting all over inside and outside the vehicle. Big wheels and tires. Best AWD system available. Just the right size. Lots of cupholders. Very flexible interior.
30 more lb ft of torque would be nice. Memory on seats and outside mirrors. Reverse should tilt down right mirror for parking. Telescoping wheel. Factory XM/Sirius available -- I can't imagine marring that beautiful dash with an attached unit. Drawer under passenger seat. Bigger glove box.
