New Tribeca Owner Reports
I live in the Oregon, where about 2 out of every 3 cars in a Subie. Personally, I have *never* liked them even though its clear that many, many people find them appealing (especially here.) When it came time to replace my aging Toyota Landcruiser--and gas was hitting the $2.90 mark--the Tribeca was *the only* car/SUV on my radar. I am sure everything about it could be better to some degree, but I am really pleased with mine. And oddly enough, the top two things that are the coolest to me: the front view, and the rear view. Love it or hate it, it doesn't look like every other crossover on the road. And I for one LOVE that.
Is it true that Subaru is moving away from something as unique as this design? If so, that is sad; I mean, I guess it means our cars will remain as unique as they already are, but still, its a little sad on some level. This is my first Subaru and I've always appreciated the 'independence' with which it seemed like S drove into the market, even though their other cars/wagons have looked like plain Japanese/vanilla designs to me. The Tribeca stood out. And as my grandpa used to say, "When you ride on the horizon, be ready for someone to shoot at you."
For what its worth, thanks Subaru for my Tribeca. I know you can't make a market out of one person (or even a few thousand Tribeca buyers) but you did impress me; and I'll be the first to admit that ain't easy.
