It probably doesn't matter whether it's moved or not. I didn't even know it is under "Future Vehicles". I always surf TH via the drop-down menus on the lefthand side anyway.
#3165 of 8368 Navigation System Question
May 28, 2005 (2:33 pm)
Looked at the Tribeca today. Unfortunately the sales people new very little about the vehicle. While playing with the nav system I was unable to get a listing of points of interest specifically restaurants in the local vicinity. It appeared that I had to know the names of the restaurants in order to get any information. The sales person was of little help. I was able to do this in the Volvo XC90. Is there a way to get a listing of all the restaurants for your location?
#3166 of 8368 Tribeca appearance package

This was shown at the dealer convention at San Francisco last week.
It includes a mesh grille, chrome wheels and a $1K MSRP.
I have mixed feelings. I don't like chrome wheels. The mesh grille is nice, but is a UK-design rip-off (Bentley, Jaguar, etc.). Even Cadillac is offering mesh grilles on their sport models... It seems very "trendy" (as opposed to being Subaru-distinctive) and I certainly wouldn't pay $1K for it.

Steve: ask me again after this coming Tuesday, when I really get a chance to drive one in controlled circumstances at the Ride-n-Drive. Then I'll know more about the tires.
My test drive was short and didn't reveal any weaknesses in grip, but I wasn't nearly pushing it.
Krisshna: that's with the use of the 3rd row. Fold the 3rd row and room is pretty good.
Bob: black out that grille and I'll take it. No thanks on the rims. Chrome is heavy and expensive.
