Hi sari!Who is the manufacturer of the car you're driving?I never seen that model,i dont think it's available in europe


It's a Subaru B9 Tribeca - it was a new model in 2006.


Do they call it the B9? I always thought B9 was a local Israeli marketing trick...

Anyway I've heard the car's wonderful, even though the looks don't... Appeal to me :) The new generation looks excellent though.

Ooh, the 4007 (I think?), looks good :) Based on the new Pajaro, BTW.

We do have this model in Israel, but it doesn't sell well.

We have the first 307 that's 'full of bugs', and it's noticeable. I've heard only good about the BMW engine... :)

I'm very happy with the car. It handles well and has some nice features. I had a Subaru Forester before, and I like the cars. I bought this one because it has the optional 7 passenger seating for when I need to take my daughters and their friends places. They like the DVD player for long trips.

This is my car except mine is gray and without the spoiler. I bought it with 130000 miles on it for 3000 It now has over 230000. I have also driven it though Nevada.


Tux, I had a 1990 red acura integra ls hatchback. I loved that car - it's my favorite of all the cars I've owned. It had 96,000 miles on it when I sold it. It just wasn't suitable for driving babies around in.

It's the Hemi version, right? 6.1 liters! Awesome. I bet it's one [bleep] of a fun to drive :)

@sari, It is a good car, as I've said I've heard very good reviews on it. It's just that is it's overly expensive here and no one buys it because of the image of Subaru here, which is associated with cheap cars... We did consider buying the Forester, it's a lovely car.

We're going to replace the 307 soon, with a new lease from my father's work. It's the Skoda Roomster (essentially VW):

Yes, I am aware it's the ugliest car you might have ever seen, but that's our only option since we need to fit in our dog and that's a lease from work...

I have owned a Jeep of some sort for about 12 years now...... I use to own jeep wranglers and do the old lift, big tires, lockers, gears, etc...etc... and off road them. Now I own a Jeep Liberty and its much better for the travel I do with work, but I have been know to take the Liberty off road a little :)

Nice Jeeps! :)

I find the interior to be rather small for that size of a car, having been in a Liberty several times...
