We bought this with high miles. Yes it needed some maintenance. As do all high mileage cars. Fixed a few things and it runs amazing. So quick and nimble in traffic yet you can go anywhere with the Subaru AWD system. 3rd row is perfect for the tight situations and the interior is ahead of its time. Everything looks bland compared to this car. Flat six runs for ever if you take care of it.
I brought this car 3 years ago it's a 2007 it's 7 years old the check engine light came on so i called the dealership and took it right over and the told me that the right front axel had a crack and that the mass air flow sensor was bad and the K N G filter i had in my car had trapped oil and it damaged the sensor so long story short we paid $1253 to have the work done and 2 days later again the same thing and now they claim that the sensor may be bad so i drop it off and today they said the engine is running lean and they have to figure out why but when the claimed to have fixed it the y never mentioned the engine running lean smh talk about ripping off customers . navigation system went to
I bought this car with 62K miles which is low for a subaru.
Let me preface this saying I have owned 2 subuaru's before.
I have owned this car less than a year and have the following issues...
The car loses power when driving randomly.
It stalls, lurches, and loses power.
It has been in the dealership for 7 weeks off and on to solve this problem.
Well at first they couldn't find anything wrong.
Four check engine lights later and 5 visits to the dealership, 2 oxygen sensors, 1 catalytic converter and an oil leak later the car is still not fixed.
This really has become a safety issue as the problem happens once the car has been driven over 100 miles. Won't buy a subaru again
Well, this is my experience: We bought our 2007 Tribeca new from the dealer in 2007 - since then? Well it consumes more than a quart of oil a month. Also, for the second time since we've owned it it needed the timing chain serviced (first was under warranty, thank God). This time I had done the oil change in May, in July it was down 4 quarts! Amazing, and this time there was no factory warranty to back it up. Do yourself a favor and get something else.
Interior design is really good, comparable to a car double the price.
After we traded it in this past weekend we found out (through a extended friends) that the engine is too big for the transmission in the car and it can't handle it. Not sure if that was our issue, but once it started burning tons of oil we got rid of it - quickly
