2002 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
In October 2000, read a glowing review of the Tribute in Edmunds. Test drive was impressive. Ordered an ES and had a 3-month wait for delivery (the early days). Its primarily my wife's car, but we both use it and have no qualms about our purchase. NO PROBLEMS at all. It is fun to drive and economical. We haul loads of supplies to and from our lake house in the Spring and Fall and have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of "stuff" it will hold. We highly recommend it to you.
Handling and power.
Front seats do not seem to be deep enough on a long trip.
