When we first got the Tribute we really loved it. We got an extended warranty since we bought the car used. This was a good thing because wheel bearings, the 4WD shift controller, Rear Suspension where just some of the things that needed to be fixed in the first few months. We took on a trip through the Maritimes and it had lots of pick-up, no issues on climbing some hilly terrain or passing. The comfort inside was great, but the radio broke and cup holder kept coming off. The all leather interior on our model was great and easy to clean.
We both liked the leather interior, the sun-roof, the heated seats. Also has lots of leg room in the front and back seats. Lots of cargo space and privacy cover much sturdier than other vehicules.
Very noisy when doing highway driving. Wheels come out of alignment much too easily which affect tire wear. Fuel efficiency is far from good, cost about $70 to fill probably 3 times in 2 week period.
