Review of the 2003 Mazda Tribute

  • Despite the entrance of revised and redesigned competitors to the marketplace, Mazda's Tribute remains a favorite due to its competent blend of style, space and fun-to-drive nature.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Roomy and comfortable, peppy V6 engine, great value for the money, drives more like a car than a truck.

  • Cons

    Loud engines, poor fuel economy and range with V6.

  • What's New for 2003

    DX, LX and ES trims carryover, but the V6 is newly limited to LX and ES. If you want to see what's new on the 2003 Tribute, you'll need…

Great suv!

Vehicle: 2003 Mazda Tribute DX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

I bought this 2003 Tribute for my daughters who are competitive surfers as it has adequate room and a very good reputation. However, I like driving it so much they have to fight me to use it. I LOVE this little vehicle. It's just a blast to drive and it gets GREAT gas mileage. It's not the quality of my 2003 Toyota 4Runner, but it's more fun to mess around in and I'm not so burdened my the 4Runner's weight and size.




It's a great car

Vehicle: 2003 Mazda Tribute DX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

From the very first day we purchased the vehicle it's been in the shop about 1 1/2 months. It stalls, safety restraint system fails, clutch went out, and ignition switch busted. Plus other little things. The list is too long to write all of it.

What's New for 2003

DX, LX and ES trims carryover, but the V6 is newly limited to LX and ES. If you want to see what's new on the 2003 Tribute, you'll need to look inside. This year, the dashboard is two-tone, and the insert trim is either brushed aluminum (DX and LX) or fake black wood (ES). ES models are equipped with upgraded leather and a cold package that includes heated seats and exterior mirrors. New options include an auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass and a DVD entertainment system. Four new colors round out the changes.
