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


After reading Edmunds reviews, I was a little skeptical. Don't believe what the Web Site says! The main vehicle is co-built by Ford as the Escape. Ford builds most of their vehicles well, as does Mazda. The engine is NOT a rotary, therefore is very quiet. On gas mileage I am averaging between 21 and 28 MPG. My first trip was from the L.A. area to Barstow and I got over 27 MPG with the A/C on! If you want a roomy, fuel-efficient SUV, this is it!

Best Features

One great little unknown to Ford owners is that you can add an Air Filter for the Room Cab air coming in. This is great where there is high smog and/or dust and silt in the air. The filter is available from the Parts Department.

Worst Features

I can't think of any improvements right now. Maybe Towing capacity. It is rated as a Type II hitch, but in reality what you get is a Type I.
