Nice to drive, yet very unsafe
By AimeeW on


2001 Mazda Tribute DX 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I have the DX 2WD/ 4cyl standard
Tribute and it has been a reliable car
in general but it is absolutely
horrible in the rain/snow. It handles
extremely poor in these conditions.
When it rains, I hydroplane often and
it skids on any road that is slightly
slick while braking. I am looking to
trade this vehicle in because of this
but now I see that it has depreciated
terribly as well.

Best Features

Low gas mileage! Fun to drive (road conditions permitting). Great space inside!

Worst Features

Better weight distribution is recommended to help with the slipping and sliding on the roads. Smoother shifting in manuals would be helpful. It would be nice if they made the car a little more solid and tighter. Wind noise inside the car is really loud.
