Pros

Model Highlights

The Tribeca is now offered in Premium, Limited, and new Touring models. Across the lineup, a 3.6-liter horizontally opposed 'boxer' 6-cylinder engine powers the Tribeca, with all-wheel drive and a 5-speed automatic transmission.

The Tribeca has three rows of seating, to fit up to seven. First and second rows are quite comfortable, while the front seats afford a better view outward than most other crossovers. The second-row bench is split and slides forward or back to help optimize the balance of legroom with the third row; the third row is also split and folds flat to expand the cargo area when not in use.

All-wheel drive is included on the Tribeca, as it is on all Subarus; the Variable Torque Distribution system works with the electronic stability control and traction control to provide continuous traction for the wheels that can use it. During normal driving, it sends 55 percent of torque to the rear wheels to aid handling no matter what the road conditions. Anti-lock braking is also included.

Thanks to the relatively low center of mass and a suspension that's tuned more for road performance than off-road capability, the Tribeca handles quite well while offering an absorbent ride, with the 6-cylinder engine providing ample acceleration through the 5-speed automatic. While off-roading isn't one of the Tribeca's strong points, towing is quite respectable, with a 3,500-pound rating when properly equipped.

Limited models of the Tribeca get leather upholstery, a power memory driver's seat, additional ambient lighting inside, Bluetooth hands-free, and a 385-watt Harman-Kardon audio system with XM Satellite Radio. The new Touring trim adds HID headlamps, a power moonroof, and a rear camera monitor with auto-dimming mirror, plus some appearance enhcements such as silver-painted roof rails, a silver-painted chin guard in front, and upgraded 7-spoke alloy wheels.

Options on the Limited include the moonroof, while available on the Limited and Touring are a touch-screen navigation system and rear DVD entertainment system, including wireless headphones and a remote.


Value Writeup

The Tribeca is a car-based crossover vehicle, meaning that it's going to ride and handle better on the road than utility vehicles that emphasize off-roading. While it's at the small end of mid-size, the Tribeca manages three rows of seating, to fit up to seven, so it's a good choice if you have to occasionally haul several kids in back. Also, safety is a good reason to consider the Tribeca; its all-wheel-drive system can prove an asset on slick roads, and it's been a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.


Model News

There's a new Tribeca Touring model for 2010, offering even more features than than last year's Tribeca Limited model. HID headlamps, a power moonroof, a rear camera monitor and silver roof rails are now part of the upgrade. Limited and Touring models come with Bluetooth hands-free calling features.

All 2010 Tribeca models get heated seats and auxiliary air conditioning with second- and third-row headliner vents--features that were formerly optional. Seven-passenger capacity is now included on all Tribecas, with the 5-passenger configuration discontinued.

Summary
SUBARU HAS NOTIFIED NHTSA ABOUT A DEFECT IN CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2010 TRIBECA PASSENGER CARS MANUFACTURED FROM SEPTEMBER 4, 2009 THROUGH MARCH 8, 2010. THE DOOR LATCH CABLES LOCATED INSIDE THE VEHICLE¿S DRIVER AND FRONT PASSENGER DOORS WERE IMPROPERLY POSITIONED DURING PRODUCTION. AS A RESULT, A CABLE CAN CATCH IN THE DOOR GLASS REGULATOR WHEN A WINDOW IS OPENED OR CLOSED. SHOULD THAT OCCUR, IT MAY UNLATCH THE DOOR, CAUSING IT TO COME OPEN UNEXPECTEDLY WHEN RAISING OR LOWERING THE WINDOW.

Consequence
IF A DOOR WERE TO UNLATCH, IT COULD OPEN SUDDENLY AND WITHOUT WARNING, CREATING A RISK THAT AN OCCUPANT COULD BE EJECTED AS WELL AS A RISK THAT THE DRIVER MAY BECOME DISTRACTED, LEADING TO A CRASH. THIS CONDITION MAY ALSO RESULT IN THE FAILURE OF A DOOR LATCH TO OPERATE, IN WHICH CASE OCCUPANTS WOULD BE UNABLE TO OPEN THE DOOR TO EXIT THE VEHICLE.

SUBARU WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND DEALERS AND WILL REPAIR THE VEHICLES BY REPOSITIONING AND SECURING THE LATCH CABLE IN BOTH FRONT DOORS FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR ABOUT MARCH 19, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT SUBARU TOLL-FREE AT 1-800-SUBARU3 (1-800-782-2783) MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY BETWEEN 8:30 AM AND 7:00 PM EST AND FRIDAY BETWEEN 10:30 AM AND 5:00 PM EST.

SUBARU'S RECALL CAMPAIGN NUMBER IS WVO-25. OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Summary
Subaru of America, Inc. (Subaru) is recalling certain model year 2003-2004 Legacy, Outback, 2009-2011 Legacy, Outback, Forester, 2006-2011 Impreza, Tribeca, 2003-2006 Baja, and 2006 Saab 9-2x vehicles originally sold or that have ever been registered in Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands (Saipan), and the U.S. Virgin Islands, or "Zone A." These vehicles may be equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules, and used as original equipment or replacement equipment. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the front air bags, these inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.

Consequence
An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Subaru will notify their owners. General Motors will notify Saab owners. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. A notification schedule has not yet been provided. Owners may contact Subaru customer service at 1-856-488-8500. Saab owners may contact GM at 1-800-955-9007. Subaru's number for this recall is TKA-16.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Subaru is recalling certain model year 2010 and 2011 Legacy and Outback vehicles, certain model year 2006 through 2012 Tribeca vehicles sold before January 2012, and certain model year 2009 through 2012 Forester vehicles sold before January 2012. Up to 53,999 of these vehicles may have been equipped with accessory puddle lights that, when illuminated, brighten the area under the doors of the vehicle. A short circuit can develop when either the puddle light or connector are exposed to an electrolytic moisture source (such as road spray that has road salt in it) and it penetrates the circuit board of the puddle light or the pins of the puddle light connector(s).

Consequence
Over time, migration of the moisture into the circuit board and/or into the connector cavity, may result in a short circuit of the puddle light system. This may generate heat which may melt the plastic resulting in smoke or fire.

Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will install an additional fused-harness, free of charge. The recall began February 19, 2013. Owners may contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783 for more information.

Subaru's recall campaign number is WQE-41. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Subaru of America, Inc. (Subaru) is recalling certain model year 2006-2014 Tribeca vehicles manufactured November 16, 2004, to January 27, 2014. Due to a possible malfunction of the hood safety system and hood lock system, the hood may open unexpectedly while driving.

Consequence
If the hood unexpectedly opens while driving, it may interfere with the driver's visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.

Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will complete this recall in two phases. Phase one will involve inspection, cleaning, and lubricating the hood safety and hood lock systems. If after this is performed the hood latch does not operate properly, it will be replaced with a new current style part. Phase two will involve installing an improved hood safety system and hood lock system. Interim notification was mailed March 4, 2016. Owners may contact Subaru customer service at 1-800-782-2783. Subaru's number for this recall is WQX-59 (phase one) and WQY-60 (phase two).

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
