Review of the 2002 Mazda Tribute

  • With rugged good looks, a stout V6 engine, plenty of room for four adults and their luggage, and a sport-tuned suspension that works beautifully on pavement, the Mazda Tribute might be the ultimate small SUV.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Stout V6 power, rugged good looks, roomy cabin, attractive pricing.

  • Cons

    Weak standard four-cylinder engine, no low-range transfer case.

  • What's New for 2002

    After an extremely successful introductory year, Mazda's Tribute SUV receives only minor modifications for 2002. DX models get additional standard equipment in the form of alloy wheels, dark-tinted glass and remote keyless entry. After a short production run, however, the DX-V6 model will be discontinued. Midgrade LX models can be ordered with ABS as a stand-alone option (last year it was bundled with side airbags) and with a six-way power driver seat. Both LX and ES models get a new driver lumbar support feature. Side step tubes are a new option on all Tribs, and four new colors debut for 2002.

A great overall car to own. Beware of the gas mileage!




Fun to drive

Vehicle: 2002 Mazda Tribute DX-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I tried this vehicle on highways (in CA), in the city traffic, on the rural road and in the heavy snow in mountains (Lake Tahoe). It's always been fun to drive. I never had luck of power and didn't miss bigger engines of Jeeps, etc. Vehicle's behavior on heavy snow (powder ~1/2 of a wheel) has by far exceeded my expectations of "parquette SUV".
