2001 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Here is a car that after 96,000 miles (50,000 of which were highway), now requires a valve compression job ($2100) in addition to spark plug and coil replacements ($750). To me that is unacceptable and has convinced me along with the other problems we've had (several times for the emissions light, stalling while simply driving down the road) NEVER to buy another Mazda product again.
I honestly can think of no favorite features this car has.
