2001 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Pleasure to own. Versatile, high clearance, performs well in stop-n-go and light on its wheels on the highway. Reliable (Japanese design). Good looks. Comfortable with the power seat (big deal for me since my wife is 5'2" and has trouble with driver's seat ergonomics). Side airbags. Lots of room.
Wind noise plus either a bigger fuel tank or better gas mileage (maybe my fuel level sensor is just too trigger happy, but I have to fill up every 200+ miles or so in the city though never more than about 14 gallons even with the light on for a while).
