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

Review

I love my Tribute, but it has been in the dealership 4 times for the same issue. Frequently the car does not want to start. The fuel pump was replaced twice. On the 3rd attempt, technical support was contacted and told to replace the IAC valve. It started up like a champ for a few days, then the problem occurred again. It also idles higher than normal since the IAC was replaced. On the 4th repair attempt, the engineers were contacted and the claim there is nothing wrong. According to research I've done on line, other people are experiencing similar issues, down to the fact that Mazda "claims" there is nothing wrong with the car.

Favorite Features

Great features for the price. Nice ride.

Suggested Improvements

Less plastic in the interior. Noise level while driving on freeway needs to be fixed. Shifter gets in the way.
