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


Review

It is a great vehicle. Rides nicely and
very roomy. Exterior is quite attractive.
Mazda has an excellent warranty. Jeff
Haas has a superior service department.
This is my third Mazda, I plan on buying
a 2005 Tribute. Love it!!!!

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


Review

this vehicle has been nothing but
trouble. I've had to replace the
following: Engine, Coolant Reservoir,
Headlights, Tie Rods, Control Arms,
Rear Wiper Motor, Windshield needed re-
sealed, Rear hatch window needed
adjusted so it wouldn't leak, Rear
hatch Door Needed adjusted didn't
close properly, Sun Roof Doesn't open
properly...switch sticks, Transmission
doesn't shift properly, brakes wear
very fast even the rotor's. It's only
been 2 years and this is what I get!
Am I supposed to assume the Air Bags
will work if I ever needed them? I've
only driven it 61 000 km's it's got
19000 km's left on manufacturer's
warranty the hole car has almost been
replaced.


Best Features

Review

I love my Tribute, but after reading
the other reviews I'm a tad worried
about brakes, rotors etc. However, my
only problem has been a strange noise
in the cd player...I've had it
replaced once but the new one has it
as well. Has anyone else experienced
problems with the CD player? Or is it
just me?

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


Review

The vehicle won't start. It takes
about 4 tries before the car finally
starts. This has happened countless
times. The service person can't find
the problem. Previously had the
stalling problem twice. Had the door
molding start coming down. Headlight
has condensation in it. Hear squeking
noise on the passenger door panel.
Accelerator gets stuck & suddenly
accelerates. To much brake dust.


Best Features

Passenger space, storage space, cd stereo system.


Worst Features

RECALL this car. Someone is going to die.
