Did not meet expecations
By Briofny on


2008 Subaru Tribeca Limited 7-Pass 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


I purchased the car in April of 08, and just hit 27k miles. Small gas tank, but mileage not bad for an SUV. The fit of the interior of the car is disappointing, loose pieces every where, & the rear hatch is not designed to strategically close when packing. Also, what is the point of the rear blower if I can't control it from the front, my kids cant reach it. The look of the car is great, but I can't justify the looks versus the quality I expect for the prices. A+ on the handling and engine (although Subaru wants me to change the tranny fluid already)! C on interior quality and pointing out as another post did, who scans on the radio any more, let me change my presets from the steering wheel

Best Features

All Wheel Drive in the North East is key! 23 MPG highway, good acceleration. Sliding second seat with recline.

Worst Features

The radio needs improvement. No reason why in 2009, this isn't a quality design. Rear hatch should be designed to indicate where it will close inside the vehicle. If so, one would know where the limit of packing ends.
