2002 Mazda Tribute LX-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I purchased my Tribute in April 2001
and it was love at first sight and has
been ever since. It is an almost
perfect car/SUV. It is fun to drive,
fun to look at and fun to own. Lots of
people seem to notice my car when I am
driving it. I did a tremendous
amount of research on SUV's before
buying this car and was very pleased
that I was able to find one at a
It has a lot of get up and
go and yet lots of room for all your
stuff. I have had my car over a year
and except for oil changes, the car has
not given me one bit of trouble, not
Go for it---zoom, zoom, zoom!!!
I also notice that I do not see that
many Tributes on the road so it is nice
to have a car that you don't see coming
and going. I think other Mazda Tribute
owners feel the same way because it is
a car that is still hard to find either
brand new or for resale.
My only concern is that the gas
mileage/tank capacity could be
better/more. I do think, however,
that the Tribute's mileage is
comparable to other SUV's in this
category and those cars are not nearly
as much fun to drive or as neat to look
at as the Trib.
