Howdy all,

Nice to see this forum being started. We just leased a Limited Atlantic Blue 5 Passenger Tribeca with tan interior for my wife. It has aero cross bars, puddle lights, cargo cover, auto dimming mirror, navigation, and bumper cover. So far we love it. This is our sixth Subaru. I currently drive a 05 Legacy GT stick shift sedan. My wife was previously driving a 05 Legacy GT Limited wagon in Atlantic Blue with a five speed. She was getting tired of driving a stick and the Tribeca was a easy transition for her. I am really impressed with the level of refinement with the H-6 and especially the transmission. So far extremely solid with no interior rattles. It's almost too good to be true, I think I need to knock on wood or something. I am happy with price we got. Comparable Acura MDX would be about $100 more per month with similiar money down.

Here other initial observations:
1. Aero bars make a little whistling noise around 40mph.
2. Don't go read reviews of the Eagle LS tires on Tirerack.com...not good!
3. I think 07 grille treatment is not as nice looking as 06's.
4. Gas mileage on trip this weekend averaged about 21.5-very acceptable.

I'll post some pics when I get some time.

I know I got it as a huge file and had to reduce it sorry, the upshot is tighten the torx screws though. Here they are the way I got them.
