Researched and drove every SUV around (<$35K) and nothing excited me like a Tribeca. Interior is stunning. Used price is unbeatable. Drives just fine despite negative reviews in the media. Alfa Romero inspired front end will grow on you. Created an emotional connection for me that was completely lacking in an explorer/edge/highlander/pilot/crv or virtually anthing else. Also embraced the wisdom of buying used instead of new with 2 young children in the house.
Heated pwr lthr seats, sport shift. Interior is stunning. Legendary performance in snow and ice. Tremendous value/price as a used car.
For a near-luxury SUV, the sound system was a little lackluster. This vehicle is pre-wired for satellite radio, but the dealer said it would cost $350 to install it? IPOD sounds tinny when playing. Also note visibility is not the best-- need to be very cautious about blind spots.
