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

Review

I did a lot of shopping before deciding on the Tribute. The second choice was a Honda Pilot but comparably equipped it was over $6K more and drove more like a Minivan! The Tribute is an excellent all around SUV. I traded an Isuzu Trooper that we had owned for 10 years. While it lacks the space of a full size SUV like the Trooper, it more than makes up for it in handling, ride and overall driving enjoyment. The styling of the Tribute appears much more "upscale" than the comparable Escape. When BMW comes out with an SUV based on the 3 series, the Tribute will be the benchmark!

Best Features

Tight ride, Miata-like steering, excellent acceleration, great upgraded audio system, exterior styling is "athletic" without looking like it came out of a Swarznegger movie!

Worst Features

Sunroof switch could use dial close setting (like VW/Audi) as it sometimes continues too far past fully closed. Driver side window switches (other than the driver's window) and steering wheel cruise control switches should all be illuminated.
