I have my 08 tribute for a month now and I wish I would have gotten the V6. I had a V6 escape that I should have kept. So far the 4 has been ok. Some days it feels fast and other kinda slow. I was trying to save gas but for now there's not much difference.
The safety features.
What happened to the side markers that was on the older models? Soul of a sports car? I don't see it, I definitely don't feel it. Needs sporty looking rims like on the older tribute? All discs brakes would be nice and what happened to the standard privacy glass on the older models? More power.
