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


We were coming up on the lease of our Sienna. We looked at several crossovers: Acadia, Edge, Murano, Pilot, CX9, Highlander. My wife had a Subie when we first met, and she asked to look at the new one. We drove all the others, and we drove this and said, "Yes." This a fun car to drive, room for kids and cargo, AWD, and we like the design. We got the gold color with tan leather. Even in the sun all day, it doesn't get that hot inside. Got it on a 42 mo lease, and we are very happy. Getting 17mpg mixed driving, but the engine only has 600 miles. Better mileage to come when fully broken in.

Best Features

Cockpit dash, instruments, heated seats are great, stereo pretty good, confidence of AWD, seats are firm, and bottom cushion is not too short like on the Sienna we had.

Worst Features

Only a 16.9 gallon tank on this H6. Why didn't subie put in 3 or more gallons? Should have HID on Limited models, should have rear air standard, not just 7 passenger, needs more storage bins, power rear gate.
