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


I have been researching SUVs for months. The Toyota Highlander, Hyundai Santa Fe and Toyota RAV 4 were also on my list of hopefuls and I test-drove each one. What sold me on the Tribute is the handling, power of the V6 and the std. options available on the ES trimline. Because of a fleet program my Company participates in and a rebate offered by Mazda, I got my Tribute for $1,600 below dealer invoice. The Highlander is also nice but too costly once you add all of the same options offered in the Tribute.

Best Features

Six CD changer, sunroof, visability out windows, exterior looks and handling. Drives nicely.

Worst Features

Make seats deeper so legs are supported a little better on long trips. Better gas mileage. Make shifter shorter or move it. I sometimes hit it when changing radio controls. Make the interior more updated and sporty- looking. RAV 4 has Tribute beat on that.
