  2. It seems they've had reversing cameras since 2008. Dunno if they are
    optional or stock. They also have back-up 'sensors' as an option. My
    guess is, not a great view out the back. Of course, electronic gadgets
    are not expensive to add to a vehicle nowadays, the Tribeca could be
    filled with cargo such that a camera would be nice to have and
    Subaru's legal department may insist on the back-up camera as a CYA
    maneuver.

    So much is being made of rear visibility recently. Is it the result of all
    of the auto makers advertising their optional solutions? Lest anyone
    forget, there is no requirement for _any_ visibility out the back window of
    any vehicle. In fact there is no requirement for a window back there at all
    so far as I know. That is what those ancient artifacts, sometimes known as
    wing mirrors or door mirrors, are for and using them along with a dose of
    common sense it is perfectly safe to drive and back any vehicle.
