2005 Mazda Tribute s Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Very dependable and capable car. Great on trips: plenty of hauling space for our small family and plenty of room for stuff and/or large dogs. Gets excellent mileage if you don't exceed the speed limit. High (but bearable) wind noise at highway speeds. Drives like a car. Easy to park.
7 speaker stereo is very good. Zippy engine. Excellent brakes. Loads of storage. Excellent visibility. Low maintenance (7500 miles between oil changes, spark plugs last 100,000 miles).
Seats could use a bit more bolstering. Less body roll would be nice. Buttons for the rear door/glass need labeling. The design of the back of the vehicle is a bit square - not as stylish as the rest of the car.
