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


Review

I recently purchased my Mazda Tribute and I just love it. This is the first time I have purchased an SUV and I'm glad I did. It handles great and I have no fear of driving it (media hype had me a little leery of purchasing an SUV). And, it drives so much better than my last car. I can't comment too much on the gas mileage as I haven't had it long enough, but the short time I have had it the gas mileage has been about 22 mpg in the city. Can you tell I really love my Mazda!


Favorite Features

My favorite feature is being able to see above the other cars. Really, my favorite feature is the automatic door locks. The feeling of security when you're alone as well as not having to wait until the last minute to open the door (especially when you have your hands loaded).


Suggested Improvements

I would like to see "Moon Roofs" on all SUV's as a standard option. Another thing I would like to see is to have the car a little closer to the ground, otherwise I have no other improvements to suggest.

Review

This car is my father's, but I absolutely love to drive it! I drive it about 2 hours a week, while he drives it perhaps 15. It's a fun car to drive, great pick up and great guts on the highway at higher sustained speeds. I've never had a problem passing a 18- wheeler going 80 uphill...like I do in my 2001 malibu. The only downfall of this great little SUV is the uncomfortable seats...on long rides we each grab a pillow. There are also large blind spots, we added a spot mirror to the left side mirror.


Favorite Features

Favorite features include the 6 cd changer and sunroof.


Suggested Improvements

The firmness of the seats is quite excessive. There are also huge blind spots on both sides. We added a spot mirror to the left side mirror.
