by nanski50 on Dec 3, 2012 Vehicle: 2004 Mazda Tribute LX-V6 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I purchased my 2004 Mazada Tribute used with 85.000 miles in early Oct. 2012.
I decided to down size from my last vehicle which was a Crysler Town and Country mini van.
I did alot of research and the Tribute kept coming out on top.
This is a great little SUV.
It is fun to drive, peepy, and gets mileage as advertised.
It has no rattles and controls are easy to reach.
It doesn't have all the bells and whistles that my mini van did but I am enjoying it completely.
I love my Tribute and plan to drive it for many years.

After 3+ yrs of ownership I remain very satisfied with my Tribute LX. I carefully researched all comparable vehicles vs my reqts. I still believe it is the best value for the money of its kind. After 40K miles, I installed quieter, softer riding tires vs the factory tires; noticeable change in ride and quietness. Easy thing to do. My young adult teens really like the leg room space in the back seat and enjoy driving it. MPG is competitive. I have the premier sound system. Sporty, responsive engine that can be used to tow if you wish (I have not yet).

I have been driving over 56 years and my Mazda Tribute has been the most enjoyable drive ever! In three years of driving the only mechanical problem required replacement of the transmission which was dealt with very well by the dealer. It still has a new car smell and each time I get in it I feel as excited as when it was new. The finish is still like new and shines as if just waxed. Soon I will be ready for an upgrade to a more current model.

This is my second review.. i left my last one a little over a year ago.. I thought this car was great.. I have had so many problems.. the stereo has had to be replaced several times.. my passenger air bag cover keeps popping off, the sealing around the doors is coming off, and the wheels keep getting out of alignment (I mostly drive stricly highway). My Waco TX Mazda Dealership tell me that there are no problems with the CD player (it would never play any of my CD's!!), and then they said the airbag cover popping off was my problem.. after enough arguing with them they finally hesitated to fix it. But other than all of that, it has been fun to drive. Great car for out of town trips!!

I had a hunch that the Tribute would
be a very good vehicle because I have
owned 2 MPV's and knew the Tribute
would be a great addition to the
family. Fun at the Beach, in the
mountains and love to ride with the
Moonroof open. Great Vehicle......so
far. Needs the front bracket mounted,
but I mounted it anyway because there
are 2 small places where you can drive
screws into the bumper and display
your favorite tag. Go Noles/Dawgs!!!!!
