Subaru is discontinuing the Tribeca SUV, which was polarizing at best, and in some quarters openly jeered at. Subaru defied the recession, well, except for the Tribeca, the most expensive car in Subaru's lineup. The Tribeca has generated just 78,000 sales since reaching the U.S. market in 2005. And volume fell to a mere 1,247 during the first nine months of this year. By comparison, U.S. sales of the ever-popular Subaru Outback came to 90,073 during the first three quarters of 2013.
