Vehicle2004 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewI have approximately 20,000 miles on my 2003 Merlot ES. It's a great vehicle for the commute, as the traction in the winter is exceptional, and I average silightly over 21 M.P.G. I had one major problem at about 4,000 miles, when an engine leak developed. The engine was pulled to find a camshaft seal leaking. Mazda provided me with a loaner for the 4 days of the repair, and it's been smooth sailing ever since. I like the looks much better than the Escape, which I briefly considered. The warranty was much better on the Mazda.
Best FeaturesPower, size and realibility. It can pull my small boat in summer, and get through the worst snow in winter.
Worst FeaturesCruise control switches should be lighted. Ignition key is at an odd angle, and shifter lever is too close to radio volume. I also have some wind noise issues.
