2001 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
After buying this I had to take it back the next day for a leak on the transmission. They had to replace the rear seal and plug. Since then I have had the brakes, battery, brake booster, window controls, cruise control, gas tank, gas cap replaced (along with a few other items). Now the transmission went out, wonder if it is related to the original leak. $3300 for a transmission, what a rip off. Please do not buy one, or any Mazda. Service here is not the best either.
It is fun to drive, when you have it to drive.
Junk the entire Tribute program and go to something else.
