Default My Review on the Tribeca

Wazzup ya'll

So Friday, my dad and I drove to Dallas for the day. Rented a Tribeca from McRee.

I have to say, that car is Awesome!!!

Smooth, a sinch to drive and very user friendly.

We didn't get DVD or Navi system but it was a fairly short drive so we really didn't need it. MPG wasn't bad either.... about 22.5 is what we got.... Of course, prolly would have gotten better is we were going 65-70 instead of 75-80 the whole way. Needless to say.... It's a One Bad Mamma Jamma!

Thanks McRee and Thank you Subaru!!!

????? In a Tribeca? Sport mode on/off? Maybe it was because of all the Ups and down in the raod. Hell.... I was happy with 22.5!

Well worth it.... And I'm not just saying that!!!

My dad and I drove an Outback to Atlanta last August..... I ONLY wish that the Tribeca Rental was an option, but I can tell you this...... No OTHER car would even be considered here for a rental....EVER... now if only I could rent an STI....

nice review mini B. lisa and i rented one in vail/eagle/copper colorado, and averaged 20.8mpg through vail pass in sportSHIFT, fresh snow, anywhere from 65-90mph.... i guess the down grades helped offset the ups, since i know i didn't go easy on it... btw, VDC WORKS!!
