I purchased my new, 2005 Tribute
five months ago after test-driving
several larger, more expensive
SUV's, and the Ford Explorer.
The Tribute continues to impress me
every time I get behind the wheel. It's
manuverability, quiteness, handling,
and responsiveness are excellent.
The suspension provides excellent
road feel and control.
Overall, Mazda has put together a
great package in a small SUV,
combining the perfect degree of
style, performance, and comfort that I
was looking for.
I have owned two Mazda's prior to
this purchase, This is my first SUV
and I highly recommend the Tribute.
Assist grips above the rear doors,
similar to the ones in front, would be
a nice touch. Illuminating the ignition
switch and glove box would also be
welcomed. The "On" lamp in the A/C
switch button is difficult to see during
daylite. Coat hooks are needed over
back doors and in hatch area.
