2004 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Have had the Tribute for one month -
1000 highway miles, 1000 local miles.
Great Highway Mielage - local mielage
is okay and is as advertised - its an
SUV, remember? NO PROBLEMS! Love It!
Compared it with Escape - seems to
corner better, and handle better (dont
know why). Being a Mazda, it should
hold its value better than Escape.
Buying experience was better than the
Standard Side Curtain Airbags on ES.
Sound system is great - no complaints
about it being noisy on highway - its
an SUV, remember? Looking forward to
4WD if needed.
Backing Up (reverse) object sensors
would be nice if available, but no
problem as an aftermarket.
