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


Review

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.


Best Features

I love that there are really no blind spots in this vehicle you can see so well around you parking is no problem at all. Great acceleration on the highway. Comfort for everyone even in the backseat, lots of leg room.


Worst Features

Fuel economy!!!

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


Review

Dunno where they get these fuel ratings. I get 27 on my commute & up to 30 hiway. Have never gotten lower than 25 mpg, even pulling the trailer. Not bad for a 2.0 4 cyl.


Best Features

mileage, 5 spd, clearance, front wheel drive, I don't need 4wd for the few miles I go off road. Front wd gets me anywhere I want to go. Don't want to drag all that weight(xfer case, axle, diff, drive shaft, etc) 30k miles for the 200 miles I go off road/yr.


Worst Features

A visor that actually blocks the sun? Lumbar support?

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Vision out front and small "blind spot" than most vehicles. Stereo system is good as is dash and controls.


Worst Features

Add cruise to manual trans. Get rid of 4 cylinder.

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


Review

This has been a great vehicle. The cost to own isn't that bad. It gets good fuel economy and can haul a fair amount of stuff. I have two kids so it does see some abuse.


Best Features

It's a good looking vehicle. The inside is pretty well laid out.


Worst Features

The paint. The paint takes a minor rub and it scratches.

Review

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.


Best Features

The rear space area is very roomy. I like the fel of the manual transmission. (5 Speed)


Worst Features

Cruise Control and bigger tires.
