2002 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
My ES was my first American Built
vehicle after 34 years of owning cars.
Never liked American handling and build
quality. Well now, I am a happy
convert! This is one hell of a well
conceived and executed SUV!
Strong engine, perfect steering feel,
firm ride, great bucket and rear bench
seats, terrific premium sound system,
no rattles, huge moonroof, great design.
Instument cluster needs more protection
from sun (washes it out), shift lever
to easy to move, needs better cluster
gear location display, larger fuel tank
and full size wheel storage. Driver
window and lock buttons need
illumination of all functions.
