2008 Mazda Tribute s Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
The AWD V-6 Grand s touring model is top notch in its class. I upgraded from the 2003 Tribute this year and I am very pleased. The car/truck gets lots of compliments and its new styling is a hit. The drive is smooth and the cockpit is sporty and overall is a great drive. Small glare during the day from the dash color on the glass but I'm sure I will get used to it.
Look of vehicle is appealing. V-6 power on a smaller frame has plenty of pick up. AWD is now automatic as opposed to the older push button 4WD Tribute I had which is improved technology.
Glare on windshield during the day, i.e. reflection of dash is slightly distracting.
