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

Subaru is also debating a plant in China, and that market likes cars the US does not. That may be another reason to keep it around for a while.

My understanding is that the China plant has been green-lighted.
Subaru sells the Tribeca in almost every market it sells cars. The countries in which it is not sold, and in which Subaru has a marketing presence, is less than a half dozen. Check it out for yourself. Here's the link to their global site:
My guess is that perhaps 25% of the Tribecas built in Indiana, are sold in the USA. The rest are exported.

Wonder what they'll build in China? Interesting.
They could use the capacity here to build more Outbacks, so it would make sense to shift Tribeca production elsewhere (and cancel US sales).

In exactly 3 months my 08 Limited lease is over. As I wont be needing the 3rd row anymore, or the luxuries (divorce, you know), I was thinking OB 3.6. But looked at subaru.com, and a base Tribeca, that has heated seats and wiper de-icer sells for less!
I am sure when I say for less , that can be for way less, right now $1000 under invoice, and if I find a 2010 by them, things will get interesting.

That shouldn't be the case, but it's all supply and demand. The Outback has been HOT since it came out, always in short supply.

The discount at time of purchase might be lost when selling or trading the Tribeca later, particularly if it has been discontinued. If you keep it many years, that might not apply.

It'll also use more gas than an Outback, but it's mostly a matter of which you prefer.

Yup, as a owner of a 2008 Tribeca 7 passenger, I think use of the Outback underpinnings plus more wheelbase would be really nice. Right now the 3rd row works well enough for the younger grand kids.
