Subaru Tribeca

The Subaru Tribeca is a large family SUV that was sold in Australia from 2006 to 2014.

Rejected by large groups of potential buyers in its first generation, the Tribeca quickly underwent a facelift in late 2007 in order to rectify its ‘koala-nose’.

All variations of the Tribeca – from the $16,800 Tribeca 3.6R Premium (7 Seat) to the $23,430 Tribeca 3.6R Premium (7 Seat) - came with a six-cylinder boxer engine and a five-speed automatic transmission.

Tribeca rivals include the Toyota Kluger, Mazda CX-9, Ford Territory, and Nissan Pathfinder.

Subaru Tribeca Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Subaru Tribeca here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Broken taillights affecting my cruise control

    I can’t see how the stop/taillight could affect the cruise control, but you could remove the bulb you replaced and see if the cruise then works. If it does then that’s a pointer to the cause of the malfunction. To be sure take it to a dealer or an auto elec and have the problem traced.

  • Holden Captiva: What's a good replacement?

    Both the CX-5 and the Tribeca are good choices; they're capable, well built and reliable. Others to consider are the Kia Sportage and Sorento. While they are Korean like the Captiva, unlike the Captiva they're very good cars, well built and reliable.

  • Tribeca transmission issues

    When Subaru updated the Transmission Control Module in 2010 it did what it thought was needed to fix the problem, but clearly they discovered later that the problem was with the torque converter. All of that suggests the company was being helpful in trying to fix the problem. Now they are offering you a new torque converter, leaving you to pay the cost of fitting it. That's a fairly standard deal with a car as old as your daughter and son-in-law's, and I would accept it.
