2010 Subaru Tribeca SUV 3.6R Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We purchased a Tribeca because it's the smallest and cheapest seven passenger vehicle with a perfect safety rating from both the federal government and IIHS. It's easy to drive and handles well on city streets, freeways, and winding mountain roads. Engine power and acceleration are more than adequate, although it's certainly no sports car. We've never taken it off road but the ride quality is good on rough pavement. The interior is comfortable on long trips. Climate controls are easy to use. The second row seat is wide enough to actually hold three people in reasonable comfort. Overall I am very happy with the Tribeca. There's nothing else which gives you so many features at the same price.


Favorite Features

Easy to move and lower the second and third row seats. Rear backup camera works very well. Plenty of 12 VDC power outlets. Turning radius is good for a vehicle that size.


Suggested Improvements

Third-row seat side airbags. Better fuel economy (maybe a diesel engine). 120 VAC power outlet. Telescoping steering wheel. Automatic headlights. Heads-up display for speedometer. Bluetooth integrated into car stereo (currently separate). Removable headrests for easier child seat installation.

2010 Subaru Tribeca SUV 3.6R Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is my fourth Subaru so I'm sold on the versatility, reliability, and safety. This Tribeca is great on performance, appearance, and comfort. It ranks number 1 in safety for its class but lacks in the fuel economy. That is probably because this vehicle is heavy and uses the all-wheel drive all the time. The third row seat is nice for children 8 and under but not realistic for adults. However with the third row seat down there is plenty of storage room. My biggest complaints are not having the electronic fold-in mirrors for tight spaces like the garage and better fuel economy. Current at 9,889 miles and no issues.


Favorite Features

Great Performance in acceleration and climbing, perfect in winter conditions, and easy to use driver controls, very comfortable on long trips


Suggested Improvements

Better Gas Mileage, Electronic Fold-In Mirrors, and Removable 2nd and 3rd Row Seats.
