Cream of the Crop
By srambus on
Vehicle2005 Mazda Tribute i Fwd 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewMy 16yr old son and I spent a good
month of his summer vacation test
driving and researching smaller
SUV's. After extensive research and
many many test drives, the Tribute
clearly rose to the top. Best
combination of gas mileage and style
and comfort. When a KILLER deal came
up in the local paper I jumped on it.
I love the fact that the interior
gives me the feeling of driving a much
larger SUV, yet the actual driving and
handling are definately carlike and
peppy. The steering wheel has a nice
grip and texture to it. In other SUVs
I felt a roll or tipping sensation
going around corners, but in the
Tribute it's practically non-
existant. All in all, Zoom Zoom for
Best FeaturesExcellent handling; Being able to open just the window in the back OR the whole door; 16" wheels; On the 4cyl, the ability to turn off the O/D on the fly, which is like all of a sudden having a V6 going up hills. Driving an SUV and getting car mileage! Longer warranty than the Escape.
Worst FeaturesThe light on the A/C is impossible to see in the daylight. The door handles feel like cheap plastic. It would be nice if the clock was always on. Larger door pockets.
