By Fun to Drive on
2009 Mazda Tribute i Sport 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
This vehicle is fun to drive. A lot of vehicle for the money. A lot of extras are standard like fog lamps, tire pressure monitor, rear window wiper,washer, defroster. Great AC!
Large sideview mirrors. Three interior colors - white, camel and brown give the interior a light, airy look. Brawny, bold front end. Electronic power steering is precise and gives good sense of control. Feels very stable pulling a small boat. Rear seats easily fold for more cargo room.
In some lighting conditions dash instruments are hard to read and top of dash is reflected in windshield. Cargo area is too small when rear seats are in use. Optional cargo net and cover offer inadequate protection to occupants. Gas mileage with a 4 cylinder and 6 speed auto should be better.
