2004 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We've had ours since May of 04 and have never had a hiccup out of it. The only issues we corrected were the horrendous Continental tires. The volume knob on the radio is a bit sticky, but that's about it.


Favorite Features

Storage and hauling capabilities. Small enough to fit in any parking space.


Suggested Improvements

Put real tires on it. The Continentals are horrid!

2004 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this Tribute new about two years ago. The styling is very nice, and it really is fun to drive. It has great acceleration, and excellent brakes. It is very easy to park and maneuver. The sound system is fantastic. The only negative I have experienced is the fuel economy. I only get about 17-18 city, and about 24-26 highway. Not bad, but for a vehicle this size it should be better. The build quality is very good. No rattles or other annoying noises after 17,000 miles. Overall it is a very good little SUV.


Favorite Features

V6, sound system.


Suggested Improvements

Fuel economy.

Review

This is the best vehicle we have ever purchased. The titanium exteriorcolor is so sporty, and the interior is sportier than most sports cars. It has plenty of room, which we need with a new baby. Don't settle for less than the V-6, and check this vehicle out before looking at a bulkier, more expensive ride. The Tribute is just plain fun to drive, while the vehicle itself is anything but plain!


Favorite Features

interior/exterior appearance, the V-6, the fold-down back seats, standard fog lights & cruise!!!


Suggested Improvements

None-- an excellent vehicle

2004 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Love to drive this little beauty. Very comfortable downsize from my van. Sporty and good milage for engine size. Comfortable for two of the teens in our house but wouldn't want all three in the back at the same time. Great stereo upgrade package and cargo tray. Fun car.


Favorite Features

Upgraded 6 disc stereo, cargo tray and organizer save carpet and groceries from rolling around.Love the leather interior easy to maintain.


Suggested Improvements

I have a 2004 and the shifter is in the way of the stereo. The shifter is moved in the 2005 model so that is an improvement but we would still like control of the radio on the steering wheel.

Review

There are a lot of choices out there. After researching and driving, the Tribute takes the prize. This vehicle is fun to drive. It has great acceleration, brakes, handling, etc.... I do agree that the front seat should be more comfortable. It does have a lumbar adjustment which helps. The sound system is great. This thing is so much fun to drive I almost wish I bought a stick!


Favorite Features

Style, 6 disc cd changer and sound system


Suggested Improvements

Front seat and fuel economy
