Emiley's experience with Tribute

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


This is our 2nd Tribute, we had a 2002. We never liked the column shift on our 2002, 2005 moved it where it belongs, middle console. Milage has slipped from 22 to 19. The Tribute has lots of room for a smaller SUV. We drive our Tribute in Northern Wisconsin and it handles well in snow, never came close to slowing down in deep snow. The noise at higher speeds seems better than our 2002. The interior looks great and the radio has 190 watts with 7 speakers gives great sound to what ever music you like. Do not feel Mazda had enough colors to pick from and do not like smaller size trailer hitch.

Best Features

Great 190 watt 7 speaker radio. Shift moved to center counsel. Interior looks great, seats comfortable, heats well for Northern Wisconsin driving. Snow driving seems no problem.

Worst Features

More colors to pick from, larger size trailer hitch, easier wire connecting for electrical in towing trailer.
