2008 Subaru Tribeca 5-Pass 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
I recently purchased the Tribeca. I previously owned a Mercedes SUV and a Toyota Highlander. I love the interior and features but I don't care for the ride. It is very bumpy and I am sensitive to motion. The Toyota gave a much much better ride and I am sorry I didn't buy it out of the lease. I was swayed by the features I didn't have in the Highlander like heated seats, memory seats, outside temp reading, etc. The insurance is a fortune-my bad for not checking. They say it is because it costs so much to fix and the excise tax is very high which I didn't factor in. Factor in all your costs before making this purchase!
Control placements, features, storage room, turn radius.
More colors to choose from, side mirrors are large and block vision, need place to put coins, bigger glove compartment, most importantly it needs to have a smoother ride.
