Previously drove an Infiniti G35 for two years and find the Mazda Tribute to meet all of my needs....excellent stereo (nearly as good as the Bose system in the Infiniti)...Lumbar adjustment works well....plenty of power, but only getting about 16 mpg in town so far....Anyway I would rate this rig as an 8 against the 10 of the Infiniti.....not far behind for $15,000 less cost and cargo room is excellent even compared to larger SUV's that I compared it with......I swore I would never own an SUV, but I love this rig.........
Driveability, Stereo, cargo space, interior upholstery, good visibility
Rear end sits a little high....recommend making it more level
