2009 Subaru Tribeca Limited 7-Pass 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


After owning 3 Subarus since 1988, I bought Subaru's premium model-Tribeca Limited-7 Seats. Subaru's improvement over the years shows in Tribeca-A gorgeous interior design/luxurious feel; sleek exterior lines; ample ground clearance/best AWD in the business; 5-star crash ratings. Pure joy to be in the driver's seat & has a solid feel on the road. We have driven our Tribeca on 1000 mile road trips of open freeways over weekends; winding steep roads and of course the in-town daily commutes/family and grocery hauling - Tribeca does it all with grace - a solid performer when it comes to merging on highways; changing lanes and passing traffic.

Best Features

The 256HP H6 boxer engine really performs in Sport mode-even in normal D mode, it has some pep-& all this with unleaded gas. The dashboard is functional yet has an elegance found in luxury brand models. Other features we like - steering wheel mounted audio functions; vehicle info display.

Worst Features

We wanted a 5 seat Tribeca but had to buy the 7 seat Ltd for rear a/c vents. Slightly improved mileage/larger fuel tank, and 2-3 inches of more leg space in the third row seat would make it a much stronger candidate in the segment.
