2001 Mazda Tribute DX 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I have the DX 2WD/ 4cyl standard Tribute and it has been a reliable car in general but it is absolutely horrible in the rain/snow. It handles extremely poor in these conditions. When it rains, I hydroplane often and it skids on any road that is slightly slick while braking. I am looking to trade this vehicle in because of this but now I see that it has depreciated terribly as well.

Best Features

Low gas mileage! Fun to drive (road conditions permitting). Great space inside!

Worst Features

Better weight distribution is recommended to help with the slipping and sliding on the roads. Smoother shifting in manuals would be helpful. It would be nice if they made the car a little more solid and tighter. Wind noise inside the car is really loud.
