Subaru Tribeca – 2008 Review: There’s a lot of power in it, a word that can refer to anything from a war to belly-button lint. And, as we discovered while driving the 2008 Tribeca, the subject can sometimes remain a mystery. Subaru’s current tagline reads: “It’s what makes a Subaru, a Subaru.” Thing is, after hundreds of miles in Subie’s midsize crossover we couldn’t figure out what “it” was. “It” certainly wasn’t the WRX’s sporty nature, and “it” definitely wasn’t spacious seven-passenger seating. Our best guess? “It” is the brand’s homogenized exterior styling and, in the case of the Tribeca, a completely average driving demeanor.
