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


After test-driving this car twice and much research, we bought this vehicle off the showroom floor in DEC of '05. After our first weekend it was in the shop after a problem with all the warning light signals. The service dept asked why we had not made an appointment! The problem was not fixed and had to be taken to the dealer 3 more times. It was then we were told our TRIBECA had a FAULTY TRANSMISSION. It stayed in the shop for over 2 weeks plus the previous days in the shop. The TRIBECA has been in the shop now more days then we have been able to drive it. This is the worst NEW car experience we have ever had. Subaru please fix this. We can't recommend buying this car.

Best Features

The design "candy" of the car is better then the Lexus RX 330, Touareg and like vehicles. Navigation works. Nice dashboard and interior layout.

Worst Features

Start with QUALITY and SAFETY? How can you sell a car under luxury marketing without standing behind QUALITY AND SAFETY first. Start by testing your vehicles first, build them better then any requirement allows and back it up with unparalleled customer service.
