2004 Mazda Tribute LX-V6 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
After 3+ yrs of ownership I remain very satisfied with my Tribute LX. I carefully researched all comparable vehicles vs my reqts. I still believe it is the best value for the money of its kind. After 40K miles, I installed quieter, softer riding tires vs the factory tires; noticeable change in ride and quietness. Easy thing to do. My young adult teens really like the leg room space in the back seat and enjoy driving it. MPG is competitive. I have the premier sound system. Sporty, responsive engine that can be used to tow if you wish (I have not yet).
Excellent sound system - I have the premier system. Compact - easy parking. Roomy (back seat) - interior fits 3 people. Partial recline of back seat is nice.
