2008 Mazda Tribute s Sport 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I have a 112 mile round trip commute to work. I like the handling, the styling inside and outside, and the summer gas mileage (28 mpg highway). City mileage is low in the winter, (around 20 mpg.) Front brakes and rotors have been replaced 3 times since taking ownership, (65,000 miles). See some rust starting on back doors. See rust starting on tail gate jam where weather stripping comes together by latch. I wash and wax weekly. It's quiet, decent power, Hydroplaning occurs on water-soaked highway roads, need to slow down under 50 to feel safe. Handles okay in winter. I use snow tires on all 4 wheels in winter. Don't like the anti-skid feature.

Favorite Features

Cruise, radio, fog lights, interior & exterior styling, paint, power locks & windows, pop open rear glass hatch. MP3 port. Easy to change oil and filter. Drain and fill transmission fluid.

Suggested Improvements

disc brakes, brakes that last longer than 10,000 miles. move the dome light controls to over the rear view mirror.
