2008 Mazda Tribute s Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I bought the Grand Touring model with V-6 black with leather interior. Worked beautifully until a few months ago. The transmission went out in July of 2008. It started with jerking on acceleration, the tires would screech loudly. I had no idea what was happening. I didn't have the truck for two weeks as they re-built the transmission. Not even a year old at the time. I took it back in two weeks ago in August because the jerking was happening again and it still stalled out at stop lights. I cannot believe this. The dealer "fixed" a starter belt or something but that has done nothing because the jerking/stalling are worse now. So, I need to take this back for a third fix. I am not happy!
I love the color and design, leather seats, lots of room and very comfortable. When the SUV works!!
Very disappointed that there is no temp gauge in the top of the line model. And the mirrors on the visors are not lighted. I'd love to know if others are experiencing what I am with this SUV
