Tribute 5-speed 4-cyl Initial report
By 5speed on
Vehicle
2008 Mazda Tribute i Sport 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Purchased the Tribute i sport with 5-speed manual transmission,fwd, and 4-cyl engine because I wanted a vehicle with cargo capacity and respectable fuel economy. The dealer where I made the purchase had to locate the vehicle with this combination, because they had never had a Tribute on their lot with a manual transmission. There is not a photo available of the manual shift lever and console combination available in the Mazda brochure. But Mazda did a good job with the 5-speed package, the shift lever is well finished and attractive with a good relationship to the steering wheel. The clutch pressure is very light and makes shifting gears easy. Now have 1709 miles and my average MPG is 30.97
Favorite Features
Cargo capacity, reasonable fuel economy, easy to use manual transmission
Suggested Improvements
on-board mpg computer, locking fuel door
