V6 tows great
By ddeemo on


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


Owned a LX V6 4WD for over 2 years and now have almost 35,000 miles. It gets decent gas milage for a SUV with so much power. Tows very strongly, towed car and equipment on trailer 3000 miles cross country with no problem. Able to pass many cars up hills that could not go faster, while pulling about 3500# trailer load with little effort. Reliability concerns initially with a leaking brake master cylinder, security key error and a few minor problems fixed under waranty. It has been reliable last 25000 miles and has not left me stranded ever like my friends BMW X5 has 3x.

Best Features

Power, looks, handling, interior room, great audio system. Solidly build with no rattles.

Worst Features

Shift arm length too long, blocks radio and rear defroster, could use reduction in road and wind noise, auto off feature on rear defroster desired, especially since on light indicator blocked by shift arm.
