Outstanding Compact SUV

2005 Mazda Tribute s AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Review
Great compact SUV although it has a ton of room inside for its size. I did a fair amount of research on available compact SUVs prior to buying. The Tribute offered the best of both worlds from great car like handling on the road and good capability in marginal conditions. The Tribute is a joy to drive and its size lets you get in and out of spaces you would never venture in a mid to full size SUV. Very safe vehicle as attested to my insurance cost decreasing $60 a year even though I went from a 2000 model year vehicle to a 2005.
Favorite Features
Sportiness and handling - fun to drive. In addition the latest 2005 upgrades (center shift, 4 wheel disc brakes, etc) are nice. Generous back seat room. Excellent sound system for the price (I have optional one).
Suggested Improvements
OEM tires are not the greatest match on this vehicle. I changed to Michelin Cross Terrains and the ride improved as well as noise levels dropping. Amazing what a set of tires can do. A lot of folks are critical of the gas mileage however remember it is still an SUV.
