The potential is there...

ReviewI fell in love with the design and
drive of this vehicle from the first
time I saw it and had to have one. You
get a lot of features for the
relatively low price tag. However, 6
months after we bought, my Tribute,
too, stalled on me--in the center lane
of the interstate at 60 mph during rush
hour. Luckily it started right back up
after I got to the shoulder and turned
it off. The dealer was great; found the
problem right away and fixed it. Mazda
is aware of the faulty computer chip
(which my dealer reset) and I, too,
can't believe they haven't issued a
recall. The potential to love this
vehicle is definitely there, but I am
Best FeaturesSize, maneuverablilty, in-dash CD changer, visibility, handling, cargo room, smooth ride, overall feeling of safety (sans the stalling episode/potential reoccurrence)
Worst FeaturesMOVE THAT GEAR SHIFT!! Take-off from idle is too sluggish. Leather is not holding up well. Plastic "bolts" are already coming loose (floor board).
