2008 Mazda Tribute s Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
All options were basic and standard. I am missing many nice features when I compared my Mazda to the Ford Escape. The car can out perform a Honda on the highway. The car felt solid on the ground when making sharp turns. The engine felt smoother with synthetic Mobile One 0W-20. The transmission is slow and heavy. The power of the engine is felt best on the highway. Solid when driven on sand or rocks. It needs many changes in my opinion.
The option of heating the seat on a cold day/nice. The option of the moon roof that opens automatically/nice. Loud music system/nice.
Add a carputer built inside as a feature. Add a digital satellite receiver. Add solar panels on the top to recharge battery often. Add a hook up to place spare tires on the top, or the rear of the vehicle. Add more digital features like digital read out instrumentation with colored LCD screen.
