2003 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I had looked for a vehicle for two years
and narrowed my search to 4 vehicles,
ultimately selecting the Mazda Tribute.
We test drove all the cars but I liked
the pickup of this vehicle, due to the
V6 engine, the way the car handled, the
spare was underneath the car and not
attached to the backdoor, and I liked
the layout of the interior. The car is
fun to drive and is very smooth on the
highway. Although it's an SUV and
visually looks larger than some cars
it's small in dimension making it easy
to park and fit into the garage with
ease. We have been on two long trips
with this car and it was a pleasure both
times. The gas mileage was very good
for a V6 at 23/26.
The seat warmer,
temp/directional/dimming rear view
mirror, front fog and side repeater
lights, rear window wiper, side impact
airbags, cargo tray and all weather
Shortenig the gear shift if possible.
The front cup holders should have a cut
out for the handle of the cup on both
sides. That's about it.
