Swap the Continentals !!!
By pennypincher on
Vehicle
2008 Mazda Tribute i Sport 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Do yourself a favor and swap the crappy Continentals for Michelin Latitude (as Ford did for model year 2009 and on) or, for less $$, Khumo AST, or anything else that is more of a highway tire (less agressive treads) The noise reduction will be AMAZING !!! My wife thought we had a new ride. Always rotate the tires (front/rear, no X pattern) at EACH OIL CHANGE. The Tribute (Escape) rear suspension is soft (to avoid the jerkiness in turns) so the tires tend to chip off on the edges. So, diligent rotation will save the day. All in all the greatest value of my driving experience !!!
Favorite Features
Low Fuel Consumption Low insurance rate Low resale value (Great when you buy used !!) Inexpensive maintenance: no timing belt, drum brakes in the rear, long life spark plugs.
Suggested Improvements
More comfortable seats. Standard cruise control STAY AWAY FROM CONTINENTALS TIRES !!!
