2002 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I was most impressed with the styling.
I am a little concerned about
the 'spongy' brake pedal. The cigarette
lighter doesn't work and the fuel door
is problematic. The premium sound
system breaks up a little
when 'pushed'. The stalling problem?...
While coasting into a drive, the car
began to 'buck' and would not move
forward. Worried, I checked the gear
selector and discovered that I had
inadvertantly put the car into reverse.
I simply placed the car back into drive
and it's been fine ever since. I've
gottten about 25.4 MPG (not bad at
all). This car is so much fun to drive,
I'll make any excuse to run to the
store or just simply, to take a ride.
