Drove it and I was sold
By junochoe on


2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca 7-Pass. 4dr SUV AWD w/Gray Int. (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


I have owned the Tribeca for about three weeks and I am continuously amazed. When we first test drove it, I noticed how smooth this SUV's boxer engine revs and how much willingness it has on acceleration. I also did some crazy turns in a parking lot and I noticed minimum body roll and solid grip during acceleration from the Tribeca's AWD. Recently, I took my Tribeca on slick and wet winding roads at about 45 mph, and the Tribeca kept its composure. At no time did I feel excessive body roll or loss of traction. This is one fun car to drive! The exterior is a bit funky, but I've learned to love it. Also, the interior is pretty space-age but very comfortable.

Best Features

The engine on this SUV runs smooth as silk. Very quiet cabin environment that feels like an aircraft cockpit!

Worst Features

I realize that the Tribeca is a pretty hefty 4000+ pound SUV but is there anything that can be done about the mileage? The Nissan Murano has much better mileage I believe.
