2005 Mazda Tribute i Fwd 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I got the stripped down manual transmission version, so no ranting here about useless options. It has held up well now after 3 years. No real rusting yet on the sheet metal. Some of the interior has a cheap plasticy feel, the handling is good on corners, does not want to flip like some SUVs. Motor is a bit underpowered on the 2.3L motor, feels like a 2.0L motor in a SUV. Decent build and design otherwise.

Favorite Features

Elevation from ground, value for the dollar. Ease to access oil and filter hood and door handles are well designed.

Suggested Improvements

Slightly stronger engine. Also use better tires, not those OEM Continental tires that squeal and slide all over the road.
