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."

"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."
