2008 Subaru Tribeca 5-Pass 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
The first Subaru we've owned and we love it! We were looking at the Honda Pilot(booring look), Toyota Higlander Hybrid(cheapo interior, drives like truck), GMC Acadia(drives like a bigger gas guzzling truck),Acura MDX (liked this but not as much as the Subaru for lots of little reasons not to mention value). The Tribeca immediately stood out. The build quality is excellent. The vehicle exudes confidence between the engine, all-wheel-drive, skid control, and all of the other safety features. The flat engine is extremely smooth even during hard acceleration(almost flooring it). The 3rd row is a little cramped but we only have 2 kids and aren't going cross-country in it either. Great car!
Unique car in traffic, great interior/exterior design, engine, build quality top notch.
Fuel economy is decent for an AWD vehicle but should be improved. Hybrid maybe? Premium sound system is great with surround movies...could be better for music.
