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


Bought it to drive from TX to NH with a 100lb dog and a cat - no problems, all were comfortable. Use the DVD all the time for 2 hour trips to see relatives nearby. We were the first ones in to the dealer with 30K checkup - we drive a LOT! Handles NH snow/ice excellently and always feels solid. Easily carries 5 adults, 7 for short trips (the rear seat is small, but okay). Quiet interior (as good or better than others I drove, including VW, Lexus, BMW, etc.) and good Subaru value (put $ where it counts, not on wood paneling!). Everything is still solid and we are @~40K. Tires are still doing well. Puddle lights are great - I had no idea how useful they would be!

Best Features

Versatility of middle seat positioning, puddle lights, comfortable seats, quiet and smooth ride, solid feel on every surface (ice, snow, rain, gravel). Heated seats, mirrors, and wipers a plus. DVD system with wireless headphones for kids. Easy to load and unload.

Worst Features

Control DVD from front. More power, especially for mountain driving. Heater capability in back seat (it only blows COLD air?). More consistent AC temperature (like other Subies I have owned, varies from freezing to warm at same temp level) and varying fan/zone controls for front passenger.
