About Subaru B9 Tribeca

Subaru's spin on the crossover SUV weds the company's legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive System to a seven-passenger vehicle wrapped in a sleek shell. The B9 Tribeca is based on the Legacy/Outback platform, but features a longer wheelbase and a wider track. Unlike many crossovers, the B9 Tribeca can actually tackle some pretty tough terrain, with over eight inches of ground clearance and an all-wheel-drive system that can route power between the front and rear wheels, depending on which set has the best traction. Although it can't tow as heavy a load as a traditional body-on-frame SUV, the B9 Tribeca does excel in the areas of passenger safety, comfort and economy.

"This vehicle has been the best ride and styling I have found. I love the performance and feel of the B9. There is a major hiccup with this vehicle. The rubber control arm bushings are a huge issue. They go out every 30K miles. Roughly $500 every time. If you purchase one, buy the extended warrenty. I didn't and now I am literally paying for it."

"I love this car! The most important feature is being able to raise the drivers seat up high enough to make it feel like your in a higher vehicle. The dashboard is gorgeous! It looks like an airplane cockpit and at night it looks really cool. The air-conditioner and heating works perfectly to cool quickly and in winter heats up fast! The heated seats are so warm and comfy it makes it hard to leave the car. The sunroof is large and opens completely and also tilts up. Great sound system. Lots of places to put things. It is just a perfect car. I can plug in my iPhone or iPod and it plays through the speakers. This is a geeks dream car. The oversized side mirrors can be problematic in narrow garages, but just be careful! I've replaced one twice. I love the backup camera and it is extremely helpful for safety."

"Thought I would always own a Outback wagon but was convinced to drive this when I went to the Dealer. Immediately fell in love with the add'l room in the interior and the handling. This past winter this car saved my bacon several times on icy roads - the VDC is awesome! On a comfort factor - the headrests are not in the most comfortable spot for a woman of my size but everything else is just fine. The navigation system seems to be a little labor intensive, but I am the impatient type who just wants things to work easily without having to read a manual. Overall though, I just love this car and will now probably always own a Tribeca!"
