2002 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
After 9 months and 12,500 miles, all I
can say about my Tribute is that it has
been a real pleasure ride and there's
not a day that goes by that someone
compliments the exterior design and
looks of this SUV (I have black). I
just came back from Florida and put the
4WD to the test on the most sandiest
and secluded beaches without any
problems. You never know your driving a
SUV.It drives, feels and handles like a
higher end mid size car. The only
problem I have had was a broken back
seat latch which the dealer replaced
and the horn stopped working (not sure
why yet and have an appt with the
dealer). No other problems.
6 cd changer and stereo really cranks,
color black with running boards and the
V6 (strongly recommend).
Make the shifter even smaller so it's
not obstructing the radio/stereo
control knobs. The cruise control
buttons need to be illuminated for
night driving. The dome lights needs to
be positioned better, towards the front
more or above the rear view mirror.
