I could not help noticing that nobody had posted anything about the Tribeca. Which is not surprising as there are so few of them around. They are surely one of Subaru's best kept secrets. Not really a vehicle for serious bad roads but still pretty good on dirt. Heaps of power, amazing comfort and definate individuality come standard with this car. I have driven the old shape and really enjoyed my time in it.
Maybe a little heavy on fuel, although if you can afford the Tribeca ,fuel prices should not be of concern. Unfortunatley it is expensive and I feel many people who can afford vehicles in this price range will go with something they feel is more of a status symbol i.e Audi Q7 etc. This naturally to their own disadvantage.
Well, at least there is now one post about the Tribeca.

It grows on you. The new one is quite generic looking, they've done away with the "Alfa" grill.

Our DP is driving a brand new one and it's bloody orgasmic. No longer the ugly duckling either....simply looks like a grown up Forester! ;D

Here is an interesting article on the Saab 9-6 prototype based on the Tribeca, quiet an attractive car I think
