My 07 B9 Tribeca has 140000 miles on it and it still runs great. The only repairs that have been needed is a sway bar bushing and two headlights. The fuel economy is not good but any vehicle this size has that issue. I average 18 in mixed driving but it has gone as low as 12 and as high as 26 on the highway. The AWD is awesome in all weather! It did excellent on a trip from PA to NC and back at 120000 miles. It is one of the best riding vehicles I have owned, it is very smooth and comfortable. It's very surprising how well the 3.0 H6 can move this hefty vehicle. I am ready for a new vehicle but I still prefer the B9 Tribeca over new models. I have taken care of it and it has returned the favor.
I bought this car back in 2008 with roughly 38k miles on it and i didn't see a problem until my warranty ended when I hit 100,000 miles. The check engine light came on and the engine was running really rough, so I did what anyone would do and took it to the dealership. They said they couldn't diagnose a problem until i had paid them $1,200. So I did, and then they said that my engine was busted and gave me an option to either pay and ADDITIONAL $12,000 for a new engine or simply buy a new car. I took my allegedly "busted" car to a local auto shop where they repaired it for even less than the $1,200 I primarily paid. NEVER BUYING FROM SUBARU AGAIN. THEY'RE CROOKS.
We bought this with high miles. Yes it needed some maintenance. As do all high mileage cars. Fixed a few things and it runs amazing. So quick and nimble in traffic yet you can go anywhere with the Subaru AWD system. 3rd row is perfect for the tight situations and the interior is ahead of its time. Everything looks bland compared to this car. Flat six runs for ever if you take care of it.
I brought this car 3 years ago it's a 2007 it's 7 years old the check engine light came on so i called the dealership and took it right over and the told me that the right front axel had a crack and that the mass air flow sensor was bad and the K N G filter i had in my car had trapped oil and it damaged the sensor so long story short we paid $1253 to have the work done and 2 days later again the same thing and now they claim that the sensor may be bad so i drop it off and today they said the engine is running lean and they have to figure out why but when the claimed to have fixed it the y never mentioned the engine running lean smh talk about ripping off customers . navigation system went to
