2002 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
This is my first true cold winter with
the Trib and it's developed some noisy
squeeks and rattles. The most annoying
is the center arm rest. Any small
amount of pressure applied to it and it
squeeks...this has to go. I've read all
the possible problems with the Trib,
but this is a new one. The next one is
the back window; rattle, rattle and
rattle. I realize that
most "hatchbacks" develope rattles, but
I don't want to hear them on my year
old, 25k vehicle.
Handling and more handling. This is my
first SUV (truck) and it's good in-
between vechicle. The 4 wheel drive
system is good also.
uumm, I'll try some different
constructive critizism. How'sa 'bout a
five speed transmission. Less shifting
and better gas mileage!
