    ...and in with the new:

    I'd drive it. I've always liked the interior, but I've never been ina Subaru in my life. :dunno:

    Type: flat-6, aluminum block and heads
    Bore x stroke: 3.51 x 3.15 in, 89.2 x 80.0mm
    Displacement: 183 cu in, 3000cc
    Compression ratio: 10.7:1
    Fuel-delivery system: port injection
    Valve gear: chain-driven double overhead cams, 4 valves per cylinder, hydraulic lifters, variable intake- and exhaust-valve timing and lift
    Power (SAE net): 260 bhp @ 6600 rpm
    (Previously 270 bhp, decrease due to new SAE testing process) Torque (SAE net): 219 lb-ft @ 4200 rpm
    Redline: 7000 rpm

    The "B9" designation was dropped from the model name for the 2008 model leaving the vehicle to be called the Subaru Tribeca and the front fascia has been dramatically restyled. The Engine is now a 3.6 L, power increased to 270 horsepower and Subaru claims 10% better fuel economy while using regular fuel (the 2006 and 2007 use premium). The rear end has been mildly redesigned. The tail lamps are more rounded and the "cutout" on the hatch above the bumper has been omitted. Interior styling is unchanged, but the second row seats have been redesigned for more room and easier access in the third row.

    True. The more I look at the new one, the more I like it. At first, I hated it because I felt that they toned it down and made it look like EVERYTHING ELSE ON THE ROAD. But, it's still not bad.

    In the first pic, it looks confused :mamoru:

    Subaru lost a shit load of money on that thing. It was only out what 2 years and had to be redesigned because no one liked it. Easily one of the worst looking cars on the road. The new one looks better, but nothing better than whats out there. Looks a little generic, still far better than that 3 piece front grille that was on the first generation.
