Having Second Thoughts

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


Bought this to replace a Blazer with 112K. This has been in the shop more and for "unknown issues" than the Chevy ever was. Fell in love with the styling and the kick, but the electrical system is a joke. Mileage is better then the 99 Chevy and took a 3600 mile trip that was fun the entire way. This is my first Subaru but due to the "unidentifiable" mechanical issues, I doubt I will purchase Subaru again if the company does not stand behind their product. My love for the safety, quick response and original styling is being overshadowed by the maintenance issues that should not be happening in a car that is under the 50,000 mile warranty.

Best Features

Heated seats, great stability and steering. Hugs the road on curves and foul weather.

Worst Features

Headlight re-design should happen but the electrical/mechanical issues should warrant recalls at this point. After much reading and research, there are numerous owners experiencing similar issues. This market is NOT the time for car companies to forget customer service!!
