Nice but with some quality reliability issues
By jimsimp3 on
2008 Subaru Tribeca 5-Pass 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
I have owned the car for 40 months now and honestly say I WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER TRIBECA and maybe not another Subaru.
purchase price including factory incentives was $6,000 under MSRP.
It has plenty of nice standard features.
I like the styling (except the Chrysler-like grill).
I really like the size and cargo capacity with the seats folded.
DISLIKES: fuel economy, small fuel tank, cheap and non-durable plastic cargo area material, forward blind spots caused by thick posts.
Last but not least ........ I have it back to the dealer too many times for issues like rough transmission shifting, replacement of brake master cylinder, headlight bulbs are frequently blown
Purchase price compared to competitor vehicles.
Standard features are nice.
Vehicle size and styling.
Add six speed transmission to improve fuel economy.
Use better interior materials.
Improve body integrity and reliability.
