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


Review

At 5000 miles (3mos)-started hearing strange noise when car was cold-found out steering seals were installed wrong and rack and pinion steering needed replacement. As soon as that was repaired-noticed vibration and rushing sound with acceleration-determined that it needed a new transmission. Went in for transmission repair and found out that the bolt holding the transmission was only in by two threads and transmission could have fallen off. Obviously a bad day at the factory- what's next-I am scared to drive it!


Best Features

Like the way it looks and handles when it is running


Worst Features

Better quality control off the assembly line-we could have been killed on the highway if the transmission fell off.

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


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!


Best Features

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


Worst Features

None-- an excellent vehicle
