Good buy for the price

2005 Mazda Tribute s AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Love the truck, runs and handles great. My evaluation was that MAZDA offered the best package of this SUV compared to FORD Escape or Mercury Mariner. Downside is, no passenger operated power door locks. No daytime running lights offered. No tinted windshield offered (upper band). No backup warning system offered. Spare tire under the vehicle is a minus.
I like the dash layout, black oak accents. 4 wheel discs, anti lock brakes. Continental tires.
Offer daytime running lights, back up warning system, windshield tint. Install passenger power door lock control. Move spare tire back under cargo lid. Add rear ventilation system. Get the windshield washer jets off the hood onto the wiper arms. When used, fluid gets all over the hood.
