AOK by me

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


I've only had the Trib for 3 months, but
so far I've enjoyed my purchase.
My biggest concern was performance in
snow, as I live in a mountainous region
and like to ski. The Trib has done fine
driving through snow storms and up snowy
mountain roads. It also holds all my
gear with out a problem. I like the
power it has to go up Mountain passes
and to cruise on the highway. The roof
rack could be a little higher as the
clamps for Thule ski rack I put on don't
have enough clearance off the roof.
The gas milage is disappointing, I've
been averaging 18-19 mpg with a
combination of highway and city driving.

Best Features

Good road performance, handles well. Cargo space handles recreation gear and a bike fits in easily with the rear seats folded down. Nice stereo system. I like the styling.

Worst Features

Automatic transmission shifter could be shorten a couple of inches. The windshield has pitted rather easily in my opinion. When driving at highway speeds, wind noise from the driver side window is enough to be noticable. The window is shut as tight as possible.
