2001 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


I've had my Tribute for 1 year and its been everything I'd hoped for in the 30k miles I've put on it so far. It's big enough to haul almost anything I need to move, it drives and handles great in any condition, including sand and deep snow, it even does great when pulling a trailer. There are a couple minor problems; wind noise is louder than it should be, and the Ford built automatic transmission shutters if you don't frequently flush the tranny fluid. Gas mileage tops out near 20 even on the highway The gear shift selector blocks the radio controls, but you get used to that. Overall, its a great little SUV for the money.

Best Features

Great look, lots of cargo room, overall dependability.

Worst Features

Redesign automatic transmission, make the V-6 available in a 5 speed tranny, reduce wind noise, better MPG.
