You are in the Subaru B9 Tribeca
What is this discussion about?

For any PacNW'ers or others willing to take a spur-of-the-moment trip to central Oregon (city of Bend) May 7th, here's a unique Subaru-sponsored event where you can win a B9 Tribeca:
It's slalom skiing in the morning followed by an 18-hole golf scramble in the afternoon. A hole-in-one on the 16th hole wins a Tribeca. Been there once... Bend is a beautiful area - outdoor-lover's paradise for those willing to take the trip.
Also regarding the tire-pressure monitoring system... isn't this a government-mandated feature on vehicles by 2007? We'd better get used to paying more for tire-related stuff.

How many of members in the forum complained about Tribeca's looks & there is no way they would buy one.
Today, as Juice & I predicted, every single one of us is ready to buy. This SUV does have an amazing impact. It is innovative & a great setback for RX330 & MDX.
I still don't see this as a $40k car. Fully loaded + tax etc comes to 40k, Hopefully i get 3k off MSRP by Dec less my 2K of Subaru bucks, it is only $35k...same as an OB VDC.
But i will have a car that is equally as good/looking even better than RX/MDX at a highlander price.

knowing only kids can sit in 3rd row & no side airbags. How may other SUVs have side air bag for 3rd row ?

My family has long been Subie owners, and I am looking forward to trading my ‘03Benz ML500 on the new B9 (I pre-ordered). Yes, the Benz is nice, HOWEVER at a cost of about $1700 per year in tires, rotors and pads, I’ve reached “that” point…This is ridiculous!!! Imagine AFTER the warranty expires in 5,000 miles. The new B9 has everything (except Xenon lamps, integrated phone and rain-sensing wipers) that my ML500 has. I will miss the xenon headlights, there is NO comparison. Anyway, I have a great dealer (Stocker) here in State College, PA that has sold the family about 12 Subies over the years. I'm excited, it's a Sube!

I agree. Lafayette is the place to meet, but why not make the meeting place be inside SIA. Does anyone know how to arrange plant tours? We could watch them build the model we want. A while back I was working for an inspection company on the painted body storage line at SIA and saw the first two Tribeca bodies come up the ramp from the oven. Odd-looking at first glance. Now that I work for the company making the IPs and other inside parts I'm wanting one. How much freight can they tack on for a drive of less than two miles from the plant?

What color combo did you go with ?

Silver with the grey interior. It's so easy to keep clean
