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


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.

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


Review

Car is enjoyable to drive, very
dependable, with average gas mileage.
The V-6 has enough getup and go when
needed9 (freeway onramps) and very good
braking capabilities. clean ride, and
easy to maintain. Parkings not a
problem.


Best Features

Am very happy with vehicle.. One of favorite features is he heated seat. It heats up fast and removes any chill rapidlyin cold weather.


Worst Features

Better sightlines to reduce blindspots

2004 Mazda Tribute SUV 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
