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


I really have liked my Mazda Tribute.
I went for all the bells and whistles
and glad it did. The exterior design
is fabulous, and the interior is very
functional with lots of room for 4-5
people. The vehicle size is perfect
for anyone who wants an SUV with power,
but doesn't want those huge Suburban-
type cars. Rides smoothly like a car.
At 9,000 miles my car stalled at 40
mph, but I had it serviced and they
have reprogrammed my onboard computer
due to a communication issue with a
celltower. I have had no further
problems with the vehicle. Customer
service at the dealership has been

Best Features

Love the cargo space, vehicle height getting in/out of car, exterior design, in-dash CD changer, great leg room in back seat, thick rubber floor mats are terrific for managing dirt and snow. Handles nimbly and easy to drive.

Worst Features

Move the gear shift! Need More cargo- space cubbies in rear. Seats even with lumbar support are too stiff for long rides. Better gas mileage! Wish vent had option for turning off outside air when needed. Too much road noise. Cargo net is worthless.
