2008 Mazda Tribute i Touring 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 4A)
I purchased a brand new 2008 Tribute a little over 2 years ago, in the past year I have had problem with faulty valve stems on 3 of the tires, peeling plastic and paint on the exterior, sealing problems with the doors and back window hatch, and just today the driver door almost completely came off! I had to lift the door up and push it in just to get it shut good enough to drive home. I have never had so many car troubles in my life until I bought a mazda. My advice...look elsewhere!
I like the sporty look of the vehicle, thats about the only good thing I can say about it.
Major design defects need to be fixed. Issues can possible give a products liability claim to the manufacturer.
