I traded in my 2003 Chevy Tahoe which was the best vehicle I ever owned. Sadly gas prices forced me into a smaller SUV. Fortunately the Tribute took the sting out of losing my Tahoe. GREAT LITTLE SUV! I love the fact the 2005 model allowed the upgraded interior for the 4 cylinder. The power leather seats are great. The only options this little guy doesn't have is the v6 and sun roof. I average between 19 and 22 MPG around town. I'm still anxious to see what it will get on a road trip. With the aluminum wheels, color keyed exterior and side-step bars this SUV looks sharp. My only complaint is the 4 cylinder doesn't have enough power to get out of its own way much less fast moving traffic--IT IS SO SLOW!
Leather seats; Home Link, auto dimming rearview mirror; overall look of exterior/interior (the standard interior is very cheap. GO WITH THE LIMITED TRIM!); good sounding stereo; great cargo room.
Larger door pockets; more HP for the 4 cylinder; quieter ride--ITS VERY CREAKY!
