Hey all.

 old '97 back again.

My old Legacy died a while back, the trans burnt up due to all the

old problems and unbelieveable amounts of commute.

So, I am looking at a 2007 Tribeca with the H-6.

It has I think 138K on it.

Can anyone say or point to what i should be looking for as

potential problems with this car?

I am out of my element.

Thanks a lot for any help.

great engines.  not much to look for specific to that platform, just regular car stuff - oil leaks, fluids, etc.


the serpentine belt pulley bearings both fail with regularity.  but they're like $10 and takes 30 minutes to replace.  very easy and just something to do immediately once you buy it.


spark plugs are a huge job and a few hundred dollars to replace.  every 60k.
