This is my second Subaru. I had a Ltd Legacy, over 100000 on it and traded it for a fuel efficient Honda Civic. My daughter now owns that with its 109,000 miles and many more to go. The Tribeca is my first sport luxury car. I drove 5 cars that day and once I drove the Tribeca, that was it, I couldn't go back to the others. I never want to rush somewhere, I just want to be in the car and mosey along. Do I mind a stoplight? Not at all. Just turn up the awesome speaker system. I sat in the third row... no problem for me, I'm 5'5".
Gorgeous inside and out. AWD cannot be beat. Comfort, sound system, back up camera, nav system, leather... woo! Many seats.
Glove compartment is compromised, can't even fit the guide books in there. Fuel economy, you have to be able to afford it and be willing to drive sensibly to conserve.
