Pre-Owned Tribeca are still one of our top movers as they are all of the above and handle very well.

Welcome back Tribeca!

Cool wish it was true..

I have had my 08 from new. 47,000 miles on it.

Seats are dreadful. The leather is treated and yet still cracking.
They have little support. No bolster no leg support.

Driving it is well boring. Good you might think but it becomes hard work with no feed back to stay awake. Brake pedal is way way too squishy. I replaced the brakes and rotors to no avail. The gas pedal is stiff but very little travel is needed to get the most out of it. Steering is way way to light for highway driving. All leads to you being tired way to easy.

Sound system is just bland. No base no middle and just two flat for any entertainment.

Dash is cheap plastic vents that do nothing (replaced in 2011) Cheap silver plastics. The plastic center console doesn't even reach the carpet. The Arm rest lifts in summer heat. The door panels are made of a mild petroleum rubber that you can't touch with sun tan lotion or it wrinkles and bubbles.

Too much plastic in the cargo area not to look a wreak should you put anything in it that might touch it.

on a whole they car has to much cheap plastic surface for a family used car.
