2007 Subaru B9 Tribeca Ltd. 5-Pass. 4dr SUV AWD w/Nav, Gray Int. (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


This is my first Subaru, and I bought it based on its safety ratings, the recommendations of friends and on my own long-standing perception of Subaru as an Innovator. Nice car, nice looking, but Subaru is falling short on the details. The $2,000 plus 2007 navigation system is shipping with a 2- year old 2005 vintage map CD. The companion audio system doesn't display title/artist/station information from CD player or radio on that big color screen like other cars in its class. It is also loud in the passenger cabin.

Best Features

Nice to look at, Love the backup camera and puddle lamps. Love the heated seats and wipers. Safe car.

Worst Features

Window-lock shouldn't block the driver from controlling passenger windows. Put a rigid pad in the center console storage, the current doily keeps getting bunched up in a corner and doesn't lay down. Deliver modern maps. Use the audio display on the nav system's screen to display useful audio info.
