Recently i have bought a 2006 Subaru Tribeca with cloth seats. I am wondering about upgrading to leather. I can upgrade the seats from a 2007 or a 2013 model with leather seats from the wreckers. Will both options fit? also i believe the 2013 model has heated seats, would the heated seats work or not have a connection.

Cheers Nick

2006 has heated seats.
Below audio controls, left and right side. If yours doesn't have the controls you will need to do some modifications to get the heaters to work

I would try for 2007. the 2006 and 2007 are extremely similar.
2013 would probably work but is more likely to require wire patching.

I did the opposite, put 06 seats into my 09,
Physically will fit no problem.
Are your cloth seats powered or manual? Check under the seat for spare connectors and if your climate panel has no heated buttons than a new one will be required. Not sure if they all came prewired for heat or not.

On a side note, first generation 06-07 got better materials than 08+ in my opinion. I swapped my gray pleather seats for nice black perforated pleather that were in better shape.
