Gas Hog & Rattle Trap
By christi on
2006 Mazda Tribute s 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Purchased used with only 600 mile so it was pretty much new. 1 year later I have spent 600.00 for brakes and my tires need to be changed already. I average 14 mpg in my V6 so is really is a gas hog. When gas was at its highest I was putting 63.00 every 3 to 4 days, I am not happy with the mileage at all. I thought it was pretty good in the beginning but now I drive 80 on the freeway the whole thing shakes. The resale value is terrible. The value 13 months later is about 8000.00 and I paid 17000 for a used. Will never purchase a Mazda ever again.
Roomy for a small SUV
Add some features to this SUV, very plain and basic, does not have anything above plain! no auto lights does even give you the outside temperature, those 2 features are standard in most cars now. I purchased the S model and that's supposed to be a step up from the i model.
