2002 Mazda Tribute LX-V6 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
The Tribute is a great mix of
practicality and sportyness. I have
thoroughly enjoyed my Tribute. It is a
great value for the money and towers
about its class. The CRV and RAV4 seem
cheaper but with options they end up
being more expensive with a smaller
engine and a rougher ride. I put 5000
miles on my Tribute in the first two
months and I have had no problems thus
far. While the interior is plain it is
practical and you can't get more
without paying a lot more money. I
don't mind the odd gear shift--it
actually makes a nice hand rest when
you are flipping through radio stations
and allows for more storage space
between seats. Zoom zoom!!
Value for money, nice appearance, shiny
exterior features, good cargo space,
gas mileage is decent for a V6 SUV.
Light in cargo area, better options for
cargo nets, I wish the seats had a
little more cushion to them.
