2001 Mazda Tribute LX-V6 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


This is an excellent car in most respects. It has been extrememly fun to drive, handles well in the snow and ice, and is a relatively comfortable ride. I have also been very impressed with its towing capability. I've towed everything from an 18 foot boat to a relatively large U-Haul. In my estimation, it rode better with a towed load than the Ford Explorer (XLT) that I traded in. I usually don't go for the first year models (having been burned once before), but this turned out to be a good move. I will get another after I've run this one into the ground.

Best Features

Towing capability and acceleration are the two primary features I like. There's not much else I don't like.

Worst Features

I think this has been improved in subsequent editions, but I don't like either the shift armature length or the ignition key insertion location. The armature is too long and is in the way and it's hard to locate (if you're in a hurry) the ignition.
