I recently purchased a 2005 Mazda Tirbute 4wd, 6cyl and have been very pleased. I took it on a long journey and it exceeded my expectations for handling, comfort, and performance. I owned a Buick Century and was used to geting 30 miles per gallon on the highway. With this SUV the mileage on the highway is about 22 and around town 18. That is the only drawback to this vehicle. It is fun to drive, loaded with safety options such side and front air bags, ABS standard brakes, all wheel drive and much more that makes it a real asset for your driving pleasure. After researching and researching compact SUVS for months, I am glad I purchased the Mazda Tribute. I think you will enjoy this vehicle
I enjoy the stereo system, the heated seats, side air bag protection, sunroof, abs brake system, interior lighting, carpeting, leather seats, outstanding cargo space for bikes, or whatever.
Larger gas tanks for the vehicle. Also, find a way to improve gas mileage.
