2002 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Review
I fell in love with the design and drive of this vehicle from the first time I saw it and had to have one. You get a lot of features for the relatively low price tag. However, 6 months after we bought, my Tribute, too, stalled on me--in the center lane of the interstate at 60 mph during rush hour. Luckily it started right back up after I got to the shoulder and turned it off. The dealer was great; found the problem right away and fixed it. Mazda is aware of the faulty computer chip (which my dealer reset) and I, too, can't believe they haven't issued a recall. The potential to love this vehicle is definitely there, but I am still skeptical...
Favorite Features
Size, maneuverablilty, in-dash CD changer, visibility, handling, cargo room, smooth ride, overall feeling of safety (sans the stalling episode/potential reoccurrence)
Suggested Improvements
MOVE THAT GEAR SHIFT!! Take-off from idle is too sluggish. Leather is not holding up well. Plastic "bolts" are already coming loose (floor board).
