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


I was looking for 7-seat SUV as well as for luxury, safety and reliability. First I tested Audi Q7, then Acura MDX, Lexus. Then looked at Volvo XC90 and BMW X5. Not decided. Then I went to the dealership for my Forester's regular service and tested Tribeca. I felt just as comfortable in it as in the previous cars. Price was much less so it was done deal. Some complain about fuel economy of Tribeca. But guys, this is not your old little Subaru! This is almost a truck! After about 1200 miles I started getting about 16 mpg in Brooklyn and more than 21 mpg on highway. Just as promised. In line with other vehicles in the class. Also it speeds up really well in sport shift mode.

Favorite Features

Superb drive. Adequate power. 7 seats - 5 comfortable + 2 ok. Low maintenance costs and reliability (from experience with Forester). Symmetric, permanent AWD that I think is better than Acura's SH-AWD, Audi's Quattro and BMW's xDrive where systems take time to transfer the power. High safety ratings

Suggested Improvements

When I have two car seats in the second row - normal person fits well between them, but obese won't feel so comfortable. Looking at the dimensions data, the other vehicles I tested are a bit wider. Perhaps it can be made wider too. Anyway, I give it all 10's as it completely satisfies my family need
