2005 Mazda Tribute i AWD 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 4A)

Review

All Mazda Tribute models are built with a Ford engine. Whether this applies to all Mazda products, I do not know, but I am entirely sure that if nothing else, this does have a Ford engine, and from my experience, most Ford products aren't worth the time or money. Now this SUV has a nice drive to it. A lot of pep or "get-up-and- go," takes corners well, and the steering couldn't be better. Although, when you step on the gas, the engine feels slightly weak, but all things considered, it could be worse. I am sorry to say that this model has given me countless problems, though. I've had to replace all my spark plugs three times and replaced all three catalytic converters. Some transmission probs.

Favorite Features

beautiful exterior; nice stereo; good size for a small family with a fairly large storage area; elevation of the vehicle ensures you won't be scraping along the cement

Suggested Improvements

had to spend over three thousand dollars in repairs on it after only driving it for 20,000 miles; cheap plastic radio components; gas mileage could be slightly better for a small SUV but does alright considering; transmission problems have arisen
