2004 Mazda Tribute LX-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
We wanted a car based mini-SUV that
could get around the city while still
having the ability to haul and go off-
road; we got it in the Tribute. It
hauls my 3000 lb boat with no problem.
It is sure footed in the mud of the Pac
NW and you can get it in any parking
spot in Seattle. You can tell however
that you are buying an "economy"
vehicle as its missing some of the
bells & whistles that my Silverado has.
Engine power. Heated leather seats.
Front seat room. Great sound system.
Needs a bigger gas tank. Move the
windshield wiper handle; too close to
the shifter. Telescoping steering
wheel would inprove posture for tall
