2005 Mazda Tribute s Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

At 200 miles the front crank shaft seal developed a pretty serious oil leak. The headliner is separating, and parts are extremely difficult to attain. The selling dealer has been terrific, but their hands are tied. Mazda North America hasn't returned emails. The vehicle now has 1,200 miles and is only 12 weeks old. It is a fun vehicle to drive, and appears to be a good value. However, this amount of initial problems should concern any possible buyers. I have purchased many new Mazda's, and this experience has definately curbed my Mazda purchasing.

Best Features

CD changer w/subwoofer. New simulated black maple woodgrain interior. New center console with automatic shifter in the console, rather than on the steering column.

Worst Features

Better customer service, better parts availability, INITIAL DELIVERED QUALITY WAS HORRIBLE.
