2004 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
This is my 2nd 2004 Tribute. The first one I traded for a Mazda 3 because of rising fuel costs back in 2005. I missed it so much that when I found another used 2004 within my price range, I bought it. It had 68,000 miles on it when I bought it and now has 95,000. The only thing that it's been in the shop for is recharging the AC. I love the way it rides and drives. I have a 20 mile commute to work and this past winter, when we had several bad snow storms, I didn't miss a day of work.
Everything! I like the power seats and the 6 disk CD player. Plus there's a lot of cargo space for moving my kids into college.
Better gas mileage. I only get an average of 20 MPG.
