    1. I also love my 2014 Tribeca. Everyone who rides with me comments on the comfortable space and great ride. Also waiting for the refreshed version.

  1. LOVE our Tribeca. People ask us about it all the time. We sit in a restaurant and see people look all over the car and remark and look for the name … which isn’t on the 2006 model. We’re excited about the new Tribeca and will definitely be buying it when it comes out!

  2. Bought a 2006 & 2014 tribeca, this is a vehicle that turns heads. My husband is a veteran & has to wear a permanent boot or loose his foot, he fits in the back seat w/our grandchildren comfortably, even clears the door jam. Please let us know, been looking for another. (4 door)

  3. My Tribeca has given me 220,000 miles of enjoyment. There is no other car in it’s class with an equivalent quality. I will take mine to 300,000 miles after which I will consider trading it in for a 2016 Tribeca.

  4. I hope Subaru does not compromise the power of the Tribeca by putting a 2.5 in it, the 3.6 along with the space and comfort are what define the Tribeca. I will not buy with a 2.5

  5. I’ll be looking to buy a new car in 2016,it maybe a Subaru this time,I just love
    the looks of the Tribeca or Crosstrek,I usually Trade car every 4 Years.
    I now drive a 2011 Mercedes-Benz B-200.

  6. Loved our beautiful Tribeca! It was a smoothest drive ever! Until it got stolen from my garage about 10 days a go and when we found it, it was a complete write off!!:-( I was devastated when I realised that it can’t be fixed.
    Subaru is such a genuine brand. No other brands comes even close to it.
    Would recommend it %100.

  7. We absolutely LOVED our Subaru experience for four years that we Owens it, until it got stolen last week! And found two days later in a complete write off condition which was devastating! 🙁 But in saying that I highly recommend it as a very good genuine family car. %100 satisfaction and will definitely buy it again.

  9. My 2009 Tribeca is THE BOMB. Right now, I only have 88K miles…but will be interested in the 2016–hoping it’s bigger since we now have three dogs…and we go everywhere with our dogs. My Subaru has helped me survive numerous Nebraska snowstorms, crashing through snow drifts and staying solid on icy roads. I will never drive another vehicle if I can help it. I love the room, the interior design, and the classic Subaru feel…My “Ru” Rocks.

  10. I loved my 2008 Tibeca. It was roomy and comfortable. The best handling car I have owned to date.
    Driving it was a pleasure. Dry roads,wet roads snow it was wonderful. Gas mileage was it achillies heel. I would love to see this improvement.

  11. Other than suspension and road noise being a little high in cabin we absolutely love our ’06 Tribeca. Engine, trannny, and AWD are superb. It’s the best bad Michigan weather handling vehicle I have ever owned, period. Hope we can get better mpg on newer models without sacrificing performance. The Beca rocks!!
