2002 Mazda Tribute LX-V6 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I have enjoyed finally having an SUV.
I found the price to be a very good
value. I have only a few design
peeves. 1) The gear shift is in the
way of the radio controls while
driving. 2) The child window lock
option is great but when engaged, the
driver cannot control the other
windows without turning off the lock.
3) The foam molding under the
windshield at the dash keeps popping
back out from under the dash. 4) The
side mirror control button is
awkwardly placed making it hard to sit
back and check mirror position while
changing settings. 5) Fog lights
should come on with running lights and
not just with headlights on.
I love my in-dash 6 cd changer and the
great engine acceleration response.
Needs better gas mileage. Also, why
are there no electric door lock
controls on the passenger side of the
vehicle. At least I have the keyless
remote but with two small children,
it's not easy to wrangle them and lock
