    I am looking a Tribeca and Toyota Highlander. They seem comperable.
    Anyone have thought about these cars and which would be preferred amd why.
    Looking to move shortly while lease rates are still great and the lease rate
    is 0%.

    Thanks

    The Highlander dosen't scare children like an ugly witch. <G>

    I liked my Outback's abilities enough to live with the styling, but
    GOD, the Tribeca is a butt ugly car.

    Den?

    I'm pretty insulted by that word.

    It's got a lot of bad blind spots and seems sluggish to me. I drove
    one two weeks ago and bought a WRX limited wagon instead. Grin.

  8. He really has a problem with the NAME of a friggin' CAR doesn't he. I
    wonder if he's insecure about his own orientation?

    let it GO Jim. It ain't worth it.

    I love my 98 Legacy GT but the new grill styling adopted for the new
    Tribeca and Impreza should cost the designer his job - " Butt ugly " is
    an understatement. I won't be buying one despite the fine engineering
    by Subaru. The Highlander ( Lexus RX 300 ) is a good looking, well
    engineered machine ( my wife has one and loves it ) that holds its
    resale better than most. Aesthetics is a big factor in customer appeal
    and thereby retained value. Add the head gasket problems to an ugly
    puss and you've got a tough sell ...and even tougher resale.

    I would go with the Toyota Highlander.

    The Tribeca is a very ugly looking car that needs a refreshening before it
    becomes mainstream. I would wait for at least a mid-cycle refreshening
    before buying it. In the meantime you should look at the Legacy Wagon and
    Legacy Outback as an alternative, unless you really need the 7 passenger
    seating.

    Would you settle for a Forester? I drove one, very impressed. If I was
    looking for a mild-mannered non-suv suv, that would be it. I know two guys
    who had them, loved them, and survived horrible crashes, walked away. Great
    cars.

    that's a good idea, although I am expecting to buy a little sooner. Perhaps
    I should cruise their website for news on when the 07 is coming. I can hold
    out.

    Forester is very small compared to outback .

  16. I'd put the Honda Odyssey on your list. I know, it may be too 'soccer
    mom' for ya - but it's as sweet a ride as the Toy. It was another that I
    considered before we bought our OBW - it was just a little outside our
    price range at the time.

  17. Omigawd, you're right! From http://www.acpropulsion.com/car_that_could.htm
    "Either Chuck Jordan, the GM vice president of design, or Don Runkle, both
    up at the Tech Center, came up with the name GM adopted--the credit, or
    blame, was never clearly attached to one or the other. Brooks and the rest
    of the AeroVironment team were dismayed by the choice, but there was no time
    to appeal it. The car was now the Impact...."

  18. How about the Chevy "Nova", which in French and Spanish means "Doesn't Go"

    few different meanings in different languages also...
