2008 Subaru Tribeca 5-Pass 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)

Review

The 08 Tribeca is a mix of great features and questionable design components. The Tribeca is solidly built and handles like a car. The engine is powerful, and the transmission shifts smoothly. Steering and braking are crisp. The cargo area is surprisingly small for a vehicle this size, a tight fit for dogs. The gas mileage is poor (17 mpg mixed) compared to other vehicles in this category, and is compounded by a small gas tank which results in a VERY, VERY short driving range. I was spoiled by my 06 Outback's 500 mile range. The thick A pillar makes turning corners a challenge if pedestrians are present.

Best Features

AWD, interior design, front seats, powerful engine, smooth shifting transmission. Engine uses regular gas unlike earlier models which used premium.

Worst Features

A 20+ gallon or bigger fuel tank which would compensate for the poor gas mileage. Considering Subarus are popular in snowy areas, better OEM tires would be welcome. An extending steering wheel would be great for those with long legs and normal sized arm lengths.
