2003 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
This is my second Tribute and third SUV, no longer have the need for a 4x4 station wagon. Overall its been good (28,000miles), looking to trade it, seems to have a terrible trade in value, even towards a new Mazda sedan. Ford builds this zoom-zoom suv and they put on the worst tires, Continental Contra If I ever buy another car with Continental tires, I'm having them include new tires in the price. Gas mileage isn't great especially at $3.00 a gallon. With the 4x4 on, we're looking at 12 to 13mpg. You have to wonder, why did they stop making the EXCURSION?
Nice warm leather seats,100amp stereo not bad even by a teenager's ears.
Hate the tires, needs lock on the tailgate, shorter shift, hate the brake dust on the front rims ... drives me nuts!
