2002 Mazda Tribute LX-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
We owned this vehicle for a little over
one year. Initially we were impressed
with the size, acceleration, and
utility of this vehicle. However,
certain annoyances became much more
noticeable the longer we drove it. It
is NOISY. I repeat NOISY. Rear lift
developed a loud rattle which has
proven elusive to correct. Cigarette
lighter broke after one week. The
steering is very heavy at low speeds.
The seats are very firm and
uncomfortable on long trips. Fuel
economy is poor. Brake dust!!! Brake
dust all the time on the front wheels.
The longer your in this vehicle the
more annoying it becomes. Beware future
buyers, this is a FORD with mazda
Acceleration, sound system, size.
Quiet the wind and road noise. Improve
the seats and ride. Improve the
