2003 Mazda Tribute LX-V6 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I've had my Tribby for a few months now. It's been great. I don't get the complaints about the shifter or road noise. Mine is fine. I love the feature that allows you to roll up the windows after you've turned off the engine. Gas milange has been 20 mpg, insurance cost low, great room and driving. Get one. When I bought mine, the Tribby was the better deal over it's sister the Ford Escape (better financing/rebate and warranty).


Favorite Features

You know the routine...shut the car off take out the key...Doh! You forgot to roll up the window! No problem with the Tribby. It allows you a grace period to roll up the windows AFTER you remove the key.


Suggested Improvements

Softer elbow pad on the door. Fold flat front passenger seat would help.

2003 Mazda Tribute LX-V6 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

we have had a great experience with this vehicle, i was impressed with the price and quality. it is the first mazda i ever owned but the third for my husband. it is a great suv for a small family needing that extra room, more room than a car. i think that it is comfortable, sporty and gets you to point a to b saftely. i dont feel like i am going to flip over and it is wide enough to give you that comfort of being stable, such a smooth ride, i love my sunroof and the hitch, the kids really enjoy it, it is a vehicle suitable for anyone in the family to drive


Favorite Features

the stereo is the best. it is perfect for a fun day driving with the windows down and playing the radio load and it having enough power to still sound good


Suggested Improvements

work on making it more quite ride , the vehicle is very noisey, you can hear the wind ect. threw the doors or windows

2003 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Exceeded expectations in quality and value compared to other brands. Two disapointments. No power door lock switch on front passenger door and poor mileage for V6. 22 will never be achieved but still hoping for 17+ in town. Great 6CD changer and power to spare. Very good ride given relatively short wheel base. Two-way rear door/window opening very convenient. Great value for the $.


Favorite Features

See above.


Suggested Improvements

Improve mileage to you achieve advertisements! Put a switch for door locks on passenger door.

2003 Mazda Tribute LX-V6 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is such a fun suv to drive!! It is so sporty and it looks cool. I really enjoy all the features. the horsepower is great. My kids really enjoy the dvd system. This suv is a real pleasure.


Favorite Features

201 Horsepower. The way it handles. The looks are so smooth and sporty. Plenty of room. Really nice dvd and 6 disc cd stereo system. Nice interior.


Suggested Improvements

The gear shift lever sticks out to far. The rear cargo cover should be standard on the LX.
