Whether bowing to outside pressure or finally seeing the light, Subaru is set to release the B9 Tribeca, its biggest passenger vehicle ever and its first dedicated sport-utility vehicle. Why it has taken this niche-product Japanese automaker so long to join the sport-ute club is not a big mystery, but becoming a member does make good business sense. After all, Subaru's entire North American lineup consists of sedans and wagons featuring all-wheel drive and nothing but all-wheel drive.

Letters to the Editor 2/15 Story sided with the police To the editor: The Morning-Herald's reporting of the Interstate 81 death of a police officer is heavily biased in favor of the police. It consistently reports that the Subaru ran into the police cruiser, killing an officer "in the line of duty.

Jerry Adams, national experts in aggressive driving issues, suggest "Sorry" signs. Write "Sorry" in thick, bold, black letters on a white background.

The Forester continues to solidify Subaru's burgeoning popularity as a producer of buttery-slick all-wheel-drive vehicles. For 2006 there's more to admire given the series of significant updates in performance and features to this wagon. Since its 1997 arrival, the Forester has regularly earned accolades for its verve and versatility. Back then, it was positioned as a tall and friendly-faced version of the Impreza, the vehicle upon which the Forester was loosely based. Lately, however, the increasing popularity of small and economical sport-utility vehicles has meant an evolving role for the Forester.
