I have had my Tribute for a year now
and have no troubles. The ride is very
smooth, and the drivetrain is
surprisingly responsive, considering
the low-end power package. The
interior is very roomy for all five
passengers, with plenty of cargo area
as well. The only negatives I have
noticed is in the transmission. It can
be difficult to shift gears at higher
rpms, and it has a tendency to spin the
tires too easily when accelerating from
a stop. But overall, I'm very pleased.
Needs a redline on the tachometer.
Wind noise could be lower.
