2004 Mazda Tribute LX-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
The Tribute drives well but it is an
absolute guzzler. The sticker says
18/23 but it is more like 14/17.
When you add in the fact that I only
use 89 or 93 Octane gas, and ONLY
purchase from a big name gas station
such as Mobil or Amoco, I can only
guess that the numbers on the Sticker
would be reached if you drive in a
place called Fantasy Land.
Those people at Mazda must have been
drinking something when they came up
with that inflateable and untrue gas
mileage number for their sticker. If I
knew the real deal I would have
purchased a different SUV.
It does drive nicely.
Be honest with the public as far as the
predicted gas mileage.
