2001 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I went straight from a Miata to a Tribute without missing out on too much fun (although I do feel a pang of sadness when I see a montego blue Miata on the road). I'm happy with most aspects of the Tribute except for the electrical problems I've had. Sensor problems have caused the engine light to come on twice and the coolant light once. At one point my radio would not turn off even after the key was out of the ignition. That along with a problem with the windshield washer has brought my Tribute in for warrantee work 3 times. Regardless of my bad luck, I'm happy with my purchase and have recommended the Tribute to people looking for SUVs.
