Wife replacing her 99 Outback with...........

An 06 B9 Tribeca. A definite improvement over the under-powered Outback. The press says it's a little sluggish off the line. I beg to disagree, seems pretty peppy to me, I mean for an SUV weighing 4100lbs and having 250 horses. It's the 5 passenger Limited, with the nav system. The dash is very nice, futuristic even.

Those Subaru flat 4's are pretty quick!

I can't get used to the front end on that vehicle, but Subaru's are good cars.

Good luck with it.

The front end is different, but at least its not going to get lost in the crowd. It's got the boxer 6, and it's rated at 230, not 250, like I said before.

I'm sure it's a nice SUV but hell, it's almost as ugly as the Aztek...
