2001 Mazda Tribute DX-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
We bought our Tribute new back in 2001 and absolutely love it. We now have 140,000 miles on it and the only servicing that it has needed has been the usual wear and tear. We have always had our servicing done at the dealer. Best of all...this SUV is great in the snow. I have never had a problem driving this vehicle in bad weather. I average about 20 mpg. We also had a Miata and finally departed with that car after it had 250,000 miles on it. What can I say about Mazda.......they make reliable cars as long as you do your part in maintaining them.
Awesome in the bad weather....snow, slush, etc.
The headlight casings do always seem to have condensation inside of them.
