2005 Mazda Tribute s AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

The good: Fun to drive. Good driving visibility. Roomy. Rugged. Good looking SUV. Easy to maneuver in the city. Comfortable when taking road trips. Sufficient power for most needs. The bad: MPG. Another couple of miles per gallon would make me feel better. With the second row seat folded down the center console will not open fully. Duh. Cupholders don't accommodate various sizes and heights. Tall drinks next to the center console latch won't fit and is in the way of your arm resting on the console lid. Further, two cups are tough to hold at the same time. I find 20 oz cups/12 oz cans work best. Drop something between the seats, good luck getting it out! Need more places to store stuff.

Best Features

Fun to drive. The price is competitive. But really, it is fun to drive!

Worst Features

Get rid of the huge center console. It frees up leg movement and picking up items dropped between the seats. I would place the cupholders down between the seats, have armrests built with the front seats, and include storage space for cell phones, sunglasses, etc. Bigger gas tank and sun visors. Lighted cruise controls.
