Hi,
I am looking to buy a used Tribeca - and unfortunately there are none locally that I can drive (only within a couple of hours of my house). I have a rather small garage and would like to know if I can open the hatch or not in my garage with the garage door open or closed.

Could someone measure what is the highest point the hatch goes to when open please?!!!:confused:

On my 2013, measuring to the tallest point (visually standing off to the side of the car, it's hard to tell if this is actually where the Subaru Pleiades star cluster badge appears or if it's the rear windscreen wiper's attachment point to its motor assembly), I'd say no more than 80 inches.

To be absolutely safe, I'd say no more than 81 inches.

This is on the factory '13 rims and tires.

I thought the Factory wheels were 18's :) just kidding.... Ok I have almost exactly 85" of clearance with the door open... so I am guessing I should be ok! Thank you so much this helps greatly!

^ No problem! :)

I'm pretty sure that my garage also tops out at right around that height. I'll have a chance to measure again tomorrow, and maybe snap a pic or two. :)

OK, I can open the hatch fully under the lowest part of my garage door proper (note, this does NOT include the curved door arm, which protrudes several inches lower), which is one of the door hinges - which are approximately 85-86" off the floor.

Thanks Man for the help - your previous post helped me pull the trigger... brought home a CPO 2013 with 8K on the clock - about as new as it can get. The first thing I did was test the door and all is clear!!!

Now for the mods to begin! ;)
