2002 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


The Tribute is a wonderfull commuter car. Comfortable, quiet, and cool. The paint schemes available for the vehicle are plentiful. The model selectability seems to be just as plentiful. The V6 model (tested) is really powerful. The drawback of the vehicle is the car based chasis. The vehicle is based on the Mazda 626 frame. Which means it is a front wheel drive car with an all wheel drive option. For someone who does not like front wheel drive automobiles (from a maintenance stand point) this "car" is not for you.

Best Features

Price Vs. equipment standard in the ES modelis excellent. 6 Disk in dash CD player with a tape deck Power windows, Locks. The rear seats recline The visability is superb, you ride high in the seat. Handling the vehicle is just like driving a car

Worst Features

Needs to be on a truck frame to be considered a true SUV in my opinion. The interior is made out of vinyl and passed off as leather, when in truth only a small section of the seat is actually real leather (real turn off for the consumer) The interior just seems fake all round, cheap.
