2006 Mazda Tribute i 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl 4A)
Although I believe this vehicle is a decent mid-size SUV, I can't believe I had an alternator problem at 19,000 miles. It has to be replaced already and the dealership has to wait approximately 7-10 days for a new one. So I'm driving a rental until Mazda decides to ship a new one. I've had cars with 100,000 miles on them and never had an alternator failure. Anybody else experience this problem so early in their purchase?
