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

Review

Loaded except for Moon Roof. COuld not justify $15000 more for luxury SUV I really wanted but you know what they say about hindsight. Looks and handles great and no mechanical problems but long trips are unbearable due to road noise, no cruising range (300 miles max), and occasional luggage rack vibration. IF you seldom drive more than 100 miles each trip then you cannot beat this for a mini SUV. Great for younger crowd. For longer trips or boomers, look elsewhere.

Favorite Features

Handling seems stable; huge center console and glove boxes; looks, spunkiness, traction, & safety features. Seat heaters will cook your backside quickly.

Suggested Improvements

Sound Proofing, gas mileage & gas gauge: Last 1/4 tank gets about 25 miles till low fuel light at E, then 21 miles till empty! Easy to run out of gas on long trips. Needs auto temp feature as usually too hot or cold. No rear hatch key hole. Cup holders only good for 12oz cans.
