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


Review

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.


Best Features

Sporty-fun-sports car-like steering, transmission and suspension. Gas mileage is awesome. Easy to perform regular maintenance.


Worst Features

Quality could be better, but it's no where near the price we paid for our Toyotas, so, I'm really not complaining. We had a Toyota RAV4 for awhile and the quality of that car wasn't really any better than that of the Tribute.

Review

Best Features

I like the size -- not too small, yet large enough to be practical.


Worst Features

It sounds like the door seals in front are leaking. There's a lot of air sound coming in.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Looks nice and stylish.


Worst Features

Get away from Ford.

Review

Bought a 2003 Tribute a month ago and I absolutely love it!!!!! It handles exceptionally well. Visibility is great!!! It has plenty of room and I love the sound system. I would definetely recommend this vehicle to anyone that is looking for a stylish, comfortable and reliable SUV.


Best Features

I like the way the gear shifts easily. I also like the way it handles and it is very good on gas mileage.


Worst Features

Back windows do not let down completely. Seats could be softer and the ingnition could be more visible.
