2010 Mazda Tribute i Touring 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Review

2010 Tribute bought new (I thought) had a recal to recalibrate tranny...gas milage got worse, rear wiper has failed and worse still I cannot get the wiper arm off to replace the motor..even tried a wheel puller but no go. Rusting under lip of the hood and the hatchback. Had to replace resonator because weld let go. had to change purge valve because it is made too cheap. Wheel lugs are constantly coming loose on mags even after being torqued to manufact specs. Now I was told that there is rust on the roof above the driver's side door in the roof rails that appears to have been fixed before we bought the car According to a Ford dealer looks like car was dropped-explains funny clunk closingdoor

2010 Mazda Tribute i Sport 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Review

I was about to get an edge, but I figured that this was going to be better because the dealer offered it for a VERY low price. There is enough room for a family of 4 and an excellent cargo hauler. Though it is very bland. I do not like the exterior look @ all. It has enough power for my needs and fuel milage is right were it should be: about 25mpg 90% city 10% highway w/ all economical driving. If you can find one for super cheap go ahead. If not, go w/ an edge/element. Also, no problems at all except for one thing: tire pressure is already low after 12k miles.


Best Features

Best cargo hauler in the world. It is good for short trips and taxiing kids to/fro school as well.


Worst Features

Mazda, thanks for discontinuing it, and replacing w/ CX-5.

2010 Mazda Tribute s Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I was looking for a Ford Escape Limited, but couldn't get one when my Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer was due, so I selected a Tribute AWD S Grand Touring. I'm very happy after 6K miles - no troubles at all, even towing my boat around. It's comfortable, very responsive, drives well and gets great mileage. Am planning on installing the remote start feature before winter sets it. I added white wall porta walls for my tires, as it looked like it needed something.


Best Features

Fast acceleration, quite ride, comfortable seats and nicely illuminated dashboard.


Worst Features

Please add chrome around the windows or door handles and/or mirrors. The Ford bright chrome wheel package would be a nice option or at least OWL on the tires. How about a MAZDA nameplate somewhere on the car ?

2010 Mazda Tribute i Touring 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Review

Can't recommend! The transmission was replaced at 1,400 miles, because it shifted so rough. Thing is it still shifts rough and has very noisy idle. The drive is very noisy also. I am going to trade it in. The upside was the dealership service dept. Was exception. I feel bad their product was so disappointing. Will never buy another Mazda.
