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.
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.
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.
