Great bang for our buck

2009 Subaru Tribeca Limited 5-Pass 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


Shopped for a new car for 3 years. We knew we were going to get a Subaru, and settled on the Forester, but ended up with Tribeca because of the size of the back seat (can sit between two large carseats comfortably), and a great deal on this model. Initially was not interested in Tribeca because of the high octane fuel requirement, which apparently changed this MY. Took on its first long road trip, and so far has been extremely comfortable and fun to drive. It has everything we were looking for in a long-distance vehicle. The safety features are certainly a great selling point. There aren't many options/accessories that we feel are missing. Nice, solid vehicle!

Best Features

Fun fun fun to drive! Fit and finish/build quality, seats are very comfortable, very smooth ride without being a marshmallow, lots of room, well placed controls, large windows (esp. back), AWD, shiftable 5-speed automatic, loads of standard features.

Worst Features

Gauge layout is not optimal, standard integrated Ipod port, pan. Sunroof like Forester, 1 touch up/down on all 4 windows, better gas mileage- who doesn't want that?
