With the prices being so similar, go with the one you like the best. The 17K mile difference is nothing for a Tribeca... just getting broken in at 50K . Ask for the maintenance records, and if properly maintained according to the recommended schedule, certification wouldn't add that much more value. Perhaps you can dicker on price without certification. In any case, take it to a trusted mechanic and pay the $100.00 for an overall inspection prior to your final purchase. We have 74K on our 2006 and nary a problem other than replacing a headlight bulb. Of course, we have the maintenance performed according to schedule. We bought the 100K warranty and, so far, the only thing it has given us for the money is some piece of mind.

I love the pearl white color, so for me it's a no-brainer.
Having said that the other one, if CPO'd, would actually carry a longer warranty on the powertrain (47k left vs. 24k left).

I have negotiated the vehicle at the dealer to $18,986 which includes the factory certification. Does that seem like a good deal assuming the vehicle is in "clean" or better condition? It's about 100 miles from me so I want to be sure before a personal inspection and test drive. Thanks for any feedback!

For CPO, yes. The process adds about $1200 or so to the dealer's costs, so that's like getting a non-CPO for $17.7k.
#857 of 862 2009 or 2010 Tribeca
May 19, 2010 (9:40 am)
looking for insight from previous Tribeca owners/buyers-
I'm in the northeast and am looking to purchase a Tribeca. These are the 2 I have offers on at the moment:
1.) 2009 Limited with moon roof & remote start. If I purchase this vehicle, they will install the back up camera mirror. It has approx 12,500 miles on it, has had 1 owner and appears to have a clean car fax (not sure I really trust those things!) MSRP is $29,995. First offer dropped down to $28,995, with the statement "I can move a bit"
2.) 2010 Limited w/ moon roof, remote start & back up camera. Dealer demo vehicle with 2,000 miles on it. MSRP (I'm told) is $35k. Was informed by 1 person that the invoice on this vehicle was $33,300, but by another I was told $31,900 (hmmm????) Most recent offer was $31,400. The dealership has informed me this will qualify as a new vehicle, however, there is not much out there for financing incentives or rebates right now.
I'm curious to see what the thoughts of other Tribeca owners are- how much negotiating room do you think I have left here on either. Would I have more room on the 2009 since 1-2 years of the warranty have already passed? What about with the 2010?--that vehicle is almost a year old now? I am in no rush to buy, but now have the itch and would like to make a move by the end of next month...would there be better offers in a month or so as they are trying to make room for 2011's???

Resurrecting an old thread.
This is at a dealership with 27,000 miles on it, it's a clean car, has NAV but no DVD. They're asking $28,990 and it's been dropping about $500 every other week. It's not certified either.
What is think a good price for it be? Looking to get it for $26,000 - $26,500.

Hello I just bought a 2005 Tribeca three months ago. Only 25000 miles on it and paid 15000. Good deal right? Well its in the shop because the gas tank had a crack in it and was leaking gas. $700 mistake. My first Tribeca and I'm totally disappointed! I agree, make sure you get a thorough inspection so you know what maintenance and other fixes you're going to expect

Who sold it to you?
Probably was damaged from running over something.
I wouldn't blame the car itself, it's the seller's fault.

Not sure how that makes sense; totally disappointed in the car because previous owner cracked the gas tank and didn't tell you. $15K was a great deal, but $15.7 isn't?
Also, FYI, there was no 2005 model year for Tribeca
