2004 Mazda Tribute DX 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

These are such well built, reliable SUVs. Our 2004 with 160,000 mi. has never broken down or failed to deliver power towing our 18" SeaRay boat back and forth between FL & WI. No problems ever in the motor, drive train, electronics, operational parts like doors, lights, AC, heat, seat controls, etc. We'll drive it on until we need to buy a new Mazda.

2004 Mazda Tribute DX 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have had good luck with this vehicle. No service issues at all. I had a class 3 hitch installed and a transmission cooler and have towed my camping trailer all over the Rockies. It should be considered for towing small-medium loads. I threw away roof rack and installed tracks to accept Thule sliding bars. I can carry two 16'canoes with the 78" bars!


Best Features

Powerful engine, good visibility, good build quality. Versatile for in town and trips to snow, vacation or hauling the utility trailer to the dump. Dog like the fold flat rear deck and visibility.


Worst Features

Roof rack wimpy. Fuel economy is marginal for this size vehicle. Shift lever is in the way all the time!

Review

I needed an economical SUV and wanted
to buy a Honda. I ended up with the
Mazda Tribute after finding the Honda
dealer's in my area unwilling to
negotiate on price. Thinking I was
accepting second best, I was thrilled
and very suprised at the great
performance from this economical four
cylinder five speed. What a fun little
jewel. Despite the four cylinder
engine, the car is very peppy and
really does ZOOOM,ZOOM ZOOM! I live in
West Virginia where we have very steep
hills...no problem!


Best Features

Quiet, smooth ride. Very peppy. Compared to the Explorer I had been driving, great fuel economy.


Worst Features

Center arm rest for front passengers and ABS breaks on even the base model.
