Best value in mini-SUVs

Vehicle2002 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 2WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewWe just rolled over 10K trouble-free
miles in our 2wd Tributes ES. The
Tribute has to be the best value in the
mini-SUV market. It has as much or more
passenger room (especially in the
backseat) and cargo room as some
midsize SUVs but in the size and price
of a mini-SUV. My wife likes the
driving position, its small proportions
and low step-in height. It handles well
for a tall vehicle, has great power,
brakes and steering. The biggest
surprise has been how smooth and quiet
the engine and ride are. Plus we get 22
mpg in normal driving. Great value,
Best FeaturesExterior styling and lots of room and power for the size and price. Smooth and quiet engine and ride. Very good standard stereo. Dual front power outlets very convenient; one for phone and one for aftermarket portable rear entertainment system.
Worst FeaturesDriver seat uncomfortable. Intrusive column shifter, operation of the inboard and outboard HVAC vents is opposite, and stereo difficult to operate. Some interior materials look cheap and doors sound cheap. No auto climate control.
