I bought my Mazda Tribute last October. I love it; I bought it because I thought it looked like a sporty SUV with a lot of room to haul things. I have the v-6 and it has a lot of pep and go. Gas isn't the best (but no SUVs are good on gas) but to me its worth it to pay a little more at the pump and to love and have fun in what I drive! :)
I love the wood grain on the front console. I think it really makes the interior look sharp and classy!
Better gas mileage. When I fold the back seats down I don't have a place to store the headrests. Perhaps the designers could change the design so that the head rest could slide into the seats or store them under the seats or something.
