Wow...from Subaru?
By FirstSubie on


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


This vehicle is truly a refreshing drive considering all the other SUVs I have owned. I think the thing that will blow you away is the interior. The fit and finish and design is on par with our Teutonic friends from Germany. It almost has a "cockpit" like feel from a fighter jet and the electroluminescent gauges are awesome. Also, get the "puddle" lights. They really finish the vehicle off nicely! The Boxer motor is amazingly smooth as is the tranny. Shifts are seamless and road/wind noise is non-existent. The driving experience is very pleasing. The Boxer motor provides a low center of gravity so you have sharp/precise handling, not "tippy". Sports car handling with SUV clearance!

Best Features

Boxer engine/low center of gravity for "sports" car like handling and short turning radius. Fit and finish is typical Subaru which is awesome. A lot of SUV for the money. I tested an X5 and a Highlander and this was hands down the winner.

Worst Features

Styling is unique but grows on you. Must see it in person to judge for yourself. The third row is basically for kids but not a big deal because all vehicles in this class with third seats have the same setup.
