The ones we got are all base models.

"5 seaters" - 7 seaters should arrive tomorrow.

so far,
no nav (nav comes as a special ordered option as far as i know)

i'll try to get a shot of the digi din there in the dash monday

not driven one yet. these are all pre-sold.
i doubt you're going to fit 7 USDM adults in this car

i sat in the back
if you are much larger than i am, it's going to be a squeeze!!!

Yes, Aztek-esque. Nice guages though. Interesting that they still equip that weird light switch on the top of the steering column. They are certainly married to that concept. More visor decals? Front end designed by terrorists. Nice interior in general. Wish the WRX came with a cream interior.

I have a friend who has been waiting for a Subaru mini van; but I don't know if this will have enough room in the back for his 17 suitcases. Regional Travelling Salesman.



He currently packs his Minivan full, anyone know how many suitcases would fit in a Tribeca?

they do that as it is required in many countries (Europe and such)

some very specific areas require your park lamps to be on when parked

that, is why they do it

Well that might get the blood fired up if I was like over 80, but really that thing is FUGLY. I sure hope subaru really doesnt go with that face on the new wrx'es. Just because it's a subi doesn't mean you have to like it.

i'll have to check with sales.
but, as i understand it, the first batch we received are sold.

this Subaru is not aimed at us (the enthusiast/sportscar lover)
it's aimed at an entirely new market for Subaru

and i think they've hit it pretty good.
and i DO like it

not saying i would buy one.... coz i dont have a need.
but it seems like a very nice car thus far

i'll try n drive one here this week

I had a chance to see b9 up close last month....nice car. This car imho does not take pictures very well. Much better looking in person. I'd even consider getting one.

it looks OK, not very original in the rear (BMW X5), but the front looks pretty unique. What is this vehicle designed to compete with, more of the Ford Escape crowd, or more of the V6 version of the BMW X5, and Benz SUV?

thanks,
Steve
