After test-driving this car twice and much research, we bought this vehicle off the showroom floor in DEC of '05. After our first weekend it was in the shop after a problem with all the warning light signals. The service dept asked why we had not made an appointment! The problem was not fixed and had to be taken to the dealer 3 more times. It was then we were told our TRIBECA had a FAULTY TRANSMISSION. It stayed in the shop for over 2 weeks plus the previous days in the shop. The TRIBECA has been in the shop now more days then we have been able to drive it. This is the worst NEW car experience we have ever had. Subaru please fix this. We can't recommend buying this car.
The design "candy" of the car is better then the Lexus RX 330, Touareg and like vehicles. Navigation works. Nice dashboard and interior layout.
