by I love my Mazda on Jun 18, 2009 Vehicle: 2004 Mazda Tribute DX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I love this vehicle and we have put lots of mileage on it, lots of room and very comfortable, handles very nicely on highway with little noise. We drive all over on ATV trails in the bush, on the highway and around town and are extremely happy with out Mazda Tribute. When I decide to trade in I am almost certain to get another Tribute. My only complaint with it is the gas mileage considering the size of this SUV.

Overall, not a bad vehicle. Never owned a Mazda and after this may go back later on. NOT very comfortable on lower back for cross country trips. Own 5 speed 4 cylinder engine. Performs ok for size. Shifting can be difficult especially for reverse. Upsides - roomy cargo area, better than average front leg room. Handles well at speed. If you buy a Tribute, go for a v6 engine. Not bad gas mileage for an SUV, averaging about 20/23.

I purchased this vehicle in February
2004 I saved thousands on the sticker
price. The SUV has performed well. I
took it back on Christmas Day for an
emmission sensor problem. It is roomy
and peppy for a 4 cylinder engine.
