2001 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Bought this used vehicle with under
20k miles and fell in love with the
first test-drive. Still love to drive
it, but am finding annoying issues
arising on continuous basis. Like
others, don't like the placement of
the gear-shifter, but also have lost
use of rear window water "squirter."
Will cost $200 (CDN) just to check the
line because it runs inside the
vehicle! In cold weather, driver and
passenger windows squeak like nails on
a chalk-board. Mechanic said the
rubber was extremely dried out -- more
than you'd see on a 15-yr old vehicle.
Brakes also squeak in cold weather.

Best Features

Comfortable, responsive vehicle. Feel safe, easy to see and manoever in tight spots. Looks good too!

Worst Features

Put gearshifter on floor. Add separate reservoir for back window squirter for easier maintenance. What's up with the rubber issue?
