2001 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I have had this 2001 Mazda Tribute since it was new, and we have never had any problems with it. Only once when it was new, it shut off by itself on the highway, but this was soon resolved. It was a recall situation that got cleared up quickly for us. After that little incident it has always been smooth sailing with this vehicle. Great car based SUV! This vehicle is powerful, fun to drive, and very very very reliable.
Power, styling, and reliability.
There was a little road noise with this vehicle. Seats could be a little more comfortable. Headlights go bad quickly. They can condensate, fog up from the inside, and the plastic lens covers weathers fairly quickly.
