everything I need

2005 Mazda Tribute s Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
My first SUV and I really love it; looked at all the competition and kept coming back to the Tribute. I have package 3 with leather, roof and great stereo, also added dimming mirror, cargo net, wheel locks, bumper plate and side air bags; all for a great price when you take advantage of all the rebates available. This thing has plenty of room for hauling and still handles like a car, not loose like most SUV's. No complaints about the fuel economy (about 23 mph average). I only wish it had a larger fuel tank as the driving range is about 325 miles unless you go to fumes; it should have a 20 gallon instead of a 16.5 tank. For all the content, warranty and zoom-zoom you can't go wrong with a Tribute.
The whole package! Exterior styling is right on and love the new color, Violet Gray with Titanium trim. The upgraded stereo is worth the cost of admission.
Like I already mentioned, a larger gas tank is needed and where in the world is the cancel button for the cruise, the lack of this button really angers me! Apart from these things I would have to say Mazda did a great job on this truck!
