Drives like a big truck
By Jody in Plumas Lake on
2003 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
My biggest complaint about this SUV is the turning radius. It's very hard to turn into parking stalls or make U turns in tight areas... impossible to do without doing a 3 point turn. The other thing is the road noise. It is very loud while driving. Need to turn the radio up to even hear it. Otherwise it's been a great little vehicle. The gas mileage is all right, averaging 19-20, except now after my tuneup, I'm getting about 15-16.
The best features are the stereo system, the heated seats and the overall look of the vehicle.
Make the vehicle easier to maneuver in tight places
