    I went to look at a Tribeca, and, noticed that the Navigation package is
    ONLY available on the 7 passenger limited, not the 5-passenger.

    What's up with that, my wife and I have no kids living with us, so, don't
    really even need the 2nd row seats, let alone a third row, so, why am I
    forced to buy them to get the Navigation package?

  2. Ask if it can be installed after delivery.

    I agree with you. We're empty nesters and wanted to max out a 5 passenger,
    but the lack of stuff compared to the 7-pass is a marketing joke.

    IIRC, you can't get the top stereo in the 5-pass either.

    Buy a Legacy Outback R-VDC instead of the Tribeca. Same engine, better
    weight ratio, room for 5 and you get the Navigation system.The 2007s will
    all have satellite radios too - check the Subaru news releases.

    Thanks.

    I found, by searching on dealer websites, that there ARE 5-seat Limited
    Tribecas that DO have the good stereo and the Nav--the salesman lied, or was
    ignorant (yeah, right). They DID try to pressure me into getting the 7-seat
    "we'll give you $1,000 off (of $2,000 more!)". The price seems to be
    $35,896, so, I just sorted by price, and...there they were!

    The dealer said no, but, I'm not sure he was being truthful.

    Subaru has all of their service docs online.

    24 (or maybe 48) hours of access is something like $10. You could
    always look there to verify their claim.
