2004 Mazda Tribute LX-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
We bought the Tribute as a second car
to replace a 10 year old explorer. I
mainly was looking for 4WD in a small
SUV. I was close to buying an excape
but the mazda warranty was much better
so went with them. The car drives like
a dream and my other car is an Acura
TS type L. It sits high and is really
fun to drive.
Drives nice and handles extremely well.
Nice compact size and very comfortable
and I am 6-5. Attractive body
style...haven't tried the 4WD yet but
like the option of having the choice
of selecting which was taken off the
The ignition switch is hard to get
used to. The road and engine noise is
a little excessive. I also would like
a tint on the top of the windshield.
The premium radio is nothing to brag
about and still messing with it.
