2002 Mazda Tribute LX-V6 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Mazda Navajo Owner for 10 years - best vehicle ever; purchased Tribute and was satisfied with vehicle until the warranty ran out. Immediately thereafter, vehicle falling apart. Computer failed and stranded me 300 miles from home; cruise control not working, instrument panel not working,airbag sensor faulty, many electrical problems; power door locks failed and replaced; power window switches failed/replaced; fluid leaks that mechanics cannot locate, brake dust is horrible on wheels. Every week a new problem develops on this vehicle. Very disappointed -- the Mazda Tribute fails in comparison to my previous Navajo which went 150,000 miles no problems. The Tribute fell apart at 70,000 miles.

Favorite Features

Moonroof, cd player, folding back seat, carries a lot of cargo, exterior style,

Suggested Improvements

Mazda Tribute is really a Ford Escape. Improve workmanship and mechanical reliability so the vehicle is more dependable. Improve brake system, on board computer, sensor modules, upgrade power lock and window parts.
