Emergency: towing, dashboard warning lights, jump starts, flat tires
Always call a professional like Subaru's Roadside Asistance 800 261-2155 or your own emergency service folks. And read the owner's manual.
Information here is unofficial and subject to change and correction, and a Subaru trained mechanic should repair or diagnose any and all issues!

Towing your Tribeca:Tow on a flat bed truck only. However if you have no choice but to tow on the ground there's potential transmission damage, keep the speed under 20mph and the distance under 31 miles, and any damage probably won't be covered by the warranty!

Warning dashboard lights. Always take to a mechanic and have it checked out!
This isn't a full list, there's a lot more in the owners manual.
Subject to change, correction.

Low fuel light comes on with app 2.6 US gallons left.
Low tire pressure light TPMS- steady illumination when a tire is low, flashes there's a problem with the system. Take to mechanic.
VDC off light comes on when you have temporarily disabled the VDC system or when there's a problem with the system. Take to mechanic.
AWD light (AWD = all wheel drive) flashes if the vehicle is driven with mismatched or low tires which is always bad on an all-wheel-drive.
Indicates the transmission fluid is too hot. Slow down and avoid hard driving, hills, stop-go traffic etc. Take to mechanic.
  Indicates rear differential fluid is too hot. Park, let it cool down and if the light goes out it's ok. Take to mechanic.
Indicates that there is a problem. Or a loose gas cap. Anyway, slow down and take to mechanic.

Jump starting
1.Connect one jumper to the positive (+) terminal on the dead battery and connect the other end to the positive (+) terminal of the good booster battery.
2. Connect one end of the other cable to the negative terminal of the good battery and clamp the other end of the cable to the strut mounting nut.

Flat tires
The Tribeca has TPMS Tire pressure monitoring. When a tire's pressure drop below appr. 27psi a dashboard warning light goes on. It doesn' t say which tire so check all of them.  Using compressed tire inflator sealant may help get you home etc but will damage the TPMS sensor. When a tire or wheel is replaced, the sensor has to be programmed.
The spare is outside under the back.
To lower the spare, remove the subfloor storage lid in the cargo area, take out the jack and remove an access cover and cap. Get the hex-headed hoist shaft tool in the tool kit and fit it into the hole and put the wheel lug nut wrench onto it and turn it counter clockwise. Be sure to remove (not simply keep it open) the subfloor storage lid before turning the wheel nut wrench, otherwise the lid may be damaged. To replace the spare just wind it back up until you hear a few clicks and make sure the tire is tight.
