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

Review

Have had 2003 model for 6 months with all features and quite impressive for the price. Most of mileage has come from four 1500 mile trips with only negatives being road noise, poor gas mileage, and bad roof vibration at 70mph on windy days. No perceived drag on engine with air on but if you can do without it, the mileage improves from 20 to 26mpg. Lots of storage and room for cargo; better than my RX330 but not nearly as quiet and smooth riding. But at 1/2 the price, the Mazda is a better value. Long term reliability/cost is the issue and only time will tell which is the better value.

Favorite Features

Auto dimming mirror with temp and compass; huge center console; flat rear storage and volume; spunk; 50/50 diff lock; rear window or hatch access; and looks

Suggested Improvements

Cumbersome shifter and Sound proofing (there is none! YOu can hear the radio on the outside at the same level as inside when windows are up!) Gas mileage but same is true of all SUVs.
