2002 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased my Tribute in March of
2002. It's fun to drive and is very
reliable. It handles every kind of
road condition and even stops straight
on icy roads. The things I would
improve would be the front passenger's
seat belt. It locks up too easily.
Also, the interior quality could be
better. The molding on the inside of
the doors keeps coming loose. Then
again, there is no perfect car in my
opinion.

Everything is great except for a

disappears. Any comments would be
appreciated.

2002 Mazda Tribute LX-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have had my little Mazda for almost 8
months and still love it! Knock on
wood, I have had not one single problem
with it. My Trib goes anywhere I need
to go, in any weather condition. The
push button 4 wheel drive- very
convenient!!!! I will buy a new
version on this vehicle in a few
years. Yes, I still miss some of the
features of a CAR, but would not trade
my Trib anytime soon.


Best Features

push button 4 wheel drive, fun sound system, back hatch that opens either just the window or the whole thing (convenient when shopping), smooth ride and the openness of the interior


Worst Features

I still can't believe how the gas mileage is not the greatest. I'm sure that Mazda could fix the problem quite easily.

Review

Our Tribute was in the Dealer's shop
for 63 days to repair the stalling
problem. I was assured by Mazda H.Q.
in Irvine, CA that the Tribute was
fixed and there has not been any
reoccurrences of Tributes that have
had this repair done. Less than a
month later my wife and child were
again driving in the Tribute when it
stalled exactly as it had done before
the repair. In my opinion someone is
going to die in one of these cars.


Worst Features

Notify Tribute owners of the potential stalling problem and have each of the cars checked out. (As soon as you really do figure out the fix. In my opinion you have not yet fixed the problem.
