Pros

Great look, very comfortable. Probably one of the easiest cars to drive

Cons

Fuel economy is the only area that can use improvement

Nice Job Subaru - Now Work On The Mpgs — I purchased the car specifically for winter driving here in CT. The thing is a BEAST in the snow. It doesn't matter how much snow is on the ground, or how worn out your tires might be, this thing just goes. Good power, very easy to handle and drive. Suitable for any type of driver.

Great Car. — The Tribeca provided our family great transportation. It was reliable and very comfortable for long trips. It handled well in all weather conditions. The traction control system really makes a difference. We often had to carry substantial loads (suitcases, etc) and had plenty of room. The interior is roomy with good leg and head room for taller folks. Some of the features were nice to have like the remote start, heated seats, and sunroof.

It's A Great Car Only A Fwe Faults Here And There. — the last row of seat only can fit infants, the performance is very good. the cost is very high for a used car.but it's a good suv.

Pros

Winter habilities, room, beautiful interior design, robustness

Cons

Limited autonomy (54L tank only!),

Fair And Balanced — The Tribeca offers a good overall performance. The H6 engine delivers in silence and comfort. However the tiptronic transmission is a little slow. The vehicle is robust and can handle some offroad and you don't see winter months as the Subaru's All Wheel Drive system makes it invisible.Traction control and stability control help keep you on track although I would like a little switch to turn it off though just to have some fun in snow sometime :P. Expensive to put good winter tires under this. The autonomy is the biggest negative of this Subaru. The 54L will let you fill it up quite often but with an avg of 12.5L/100. Et voila!

Tribeca -love That Car — love it - leather seats with heat are the best. supercomfy... entertainment center on the back, plenty of baggage room. Handles well . GPS, reverse camera and full compat computer built it. Still love the original design - the new one looks like a Ford.
