I bought mine '08 Tribeca few months ago with 213k km, right after I bough it I had to rebuild torque converter, replace ball joints, end tie rods, sway bar bushings, rear rotors (rusted), and pads, serpentine belt and engine oil.
Now I got 219k km.

New to this forum but certainly not new to Subaru. 284k miles on my 2010 work 3.6r outback and just bought a new to me 2013 Tribeca with 63k to replace the toy 2011 STI...2 car seats, luggage wife and parents don't fit in the STI, heck it barely fits in the Tribeca but I refuse to go elsewhere but Subaru ;). Too bad the Ascent is still 2 years out... On the outback it's been the typical maintenance with a car with that many miles, replaced every axels and wheel bearings at one time or an other. Driver side window and door lock module (I blame rain on this one) and timing chain was done at about 250k due to the guides getting worn out and getting the chain slap sound.

I bought a 2008 this winter...currently has 204,500 miles on the clock. Needs brakes and suspension work for sure. I replaced the plugs and one coil right after purchase as it was missing. Other than a few fluid drips I haven't tracked down, it runs fine and it in great cosmetic shape for a vehicle with that many miles. Our teens will be driving it around town for the next few years, so if we can keep it going for 5+ years I'll be delighted.

Looking at a SB9T - 2006 with 241,000 miles. Only $2,800. If it has been well maintained is this a car even worth looking at in 2020? Is that a decent price?

I paid $2,700 for my 2008 (at auction) with 200K miles a couple years ago. It's at 220K now. While it seemed to be in fair shape when I bought it, since then I have:
  • replaced both front axels
  • replaced two ignition coils
  • replaced fan belt tensioner and belt
  • replaced both vale cover gaskets (developed an oil leak)
  • replaced the under-fender transmission filter (leaking)
  • replaced front struts (one failed)
  • replaced hood release cable assembly (the lever inside broke off)
I am still dealing with some issues that developed over the last year, the worst of which are the moon roof (which failed with a racheting noise, looks like it ate the small white plastic part that keeps it aligned when retracting), a shudder in the transmission under light acceleration (torque converter lockup?), and the P420 cat code which is thrown on one side every 150-300 miles. I'm at the point of not wanting to put more $$$ into the car. It was fine, safe transportation for our high school drivers and we've driven it more than the mileage would suggest as it's only used locally. But if I could unload it for $2K tomorrow I'd do it in a heartbeat and buy something with far less miles on the clock. I would not buy another 10+ year old vehicle again, nor one with more than 150K miles.
