2008 Subaru Tribeca 5-Pass 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
Purchased vehicle 7 months ago after much deliberation and was extremely happy with my choice. I understood the shortcomings: no telescoping wheel or bluetooth, small gas tank and 19-23 mpg (not bad considering AWD). However after I had the oil transmission cooler installed, the transmission hasn't shifted correctly again. Stays in gear too long, hard shifts etc. Working with the dealer to attempt a fix. All in all, a great vehicle for the price, all essential features and then some. Look hard at the this vehicle; you'll be doing yourself a disservice if you didn't!
Rear legroom, easy in/out of rear seats (so says the Mother), iPod jack, acceleration, exterior styling and great handling.
Larger fuel tank, telescoping wheel, iPod interface w/ navi (like Nissan), HID headlamps (Available in Latin America/Canada) and folding side view mirrors (available in Latin America)
