Overall great small SUV, minor issues

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


I currently have 55K miles on my Tribute and have had no issues with it. There was a factory recall on a computer chip, and a seatbelt which was replaced at no charge, and the dealership gave me a nice loaner while it was fixed. I love the design, and it handles great in snow, mud and slush. I travel gravel roads daily and it is quite comfortable. I average ~17 mpg, which is my only complaint. The paint has held up quite well, and have not problems with molding, etc. The leather has also proved quite durable. The 4WD has performed beautifully in varied terrain. I would definitely purchase another.

Best Features

Reliability, road performance, handling. Tough, but a nice-looking SUV.

Worst Features

Switch from column to console shifter. Currently blocks radio controls. Add ignition light. Wouldn't mind a few more mpg - not quite as advertised.
