About Subaru Tribeca

For brand loyalists, perhaps the most important thing about the 2014 Subaru Tribeca is that it's a Subaru. As the automaker's largest and most expensive vehicle, the 7-passenger Tribeca SUV offers families who have outgrown their Outback or Forester a way to move up. The Tribeca is notable for its standard 6-cylinder boxer engine and sophisticated all-wheel-drive (AWD) system, which enable this 3-row SUV to be a tenacious handler in slick and snowy conditions. However, the aging Tribeca trails rivals such as the Nissan Pathfinder, Chevrolet Traverse and Hyundai Santa Fe in technology, fuel economy and feature availability while still commanding a nearly $35,000 starting price.

"We finally outgrew our Plymonth Neon and decided on a mid size SUV for us and our 2 small kids. Living in Montana meant safety and road handling were important. We like the look and feel of the Tribeca and have been waiting for the right deal to come along. So far very happy with it. PS: On our first road trip we hit an unexpected blizzard on the way home and the vehicle did just as hoped."

"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."

"There are many things I love about the Tribeca. Safety, style, handling, cargo space, maneuverability, and the way it handles in harsh conditions. I am a 5'3'' woman and can see everything!!! I live at 7,000 ft so we get lots of snow, icy conditions, the all wheel drive is incredibly effective. My tires feel like they want to "hug" the road at all time. The back seats are rather uncomfortable for long drives, but very easy to adjust, and clean around. I like to lay the back seats down, which levels with the back so I can easily have a queen bed on a road trip in no time! I also like the modern design of the dash, it is different and sleek. I have the 5-passenger so the compartments in the back under the floor are nice too. It also drives smooth and there's not a lot of road noise. I'm also having a baby soon, the Tribeca has great safety features, and I feel comfortable driving across the country with an infant."
