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


Had some problems in the beginning with the transmission and exhaust manifolds, warranty covered those so ever since then we have had no powertrain issues. The door seals seem to sag and that is annoying but other than that the car has a ton of features for the price and has made many adventurous trips with us!

Best Features

Peppy 200hp engine, 290 watt cd changer system, tow package and 4wd system for snowboard trips. Like the smooth car like ride from the all around independent suspension and the moon roof.

Worst Features

Better gas mileage would be nice. Change the transmission gearing so when climbing a hill it does not have to kick down a gear and rev at 4500 rpm. Better solid door seals and one touch up/down power windows for the passengers.
