You Get What You Pay For!

Vehicle2002 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewHave had 2003 model for 6 months with
all features and quite impressive for
the price. Most of mileage has come
from four 1500 mile trips with only
negatives being road noise, poor gas
mileage, and bad roof vibration at
70mph on windy days. No perceived drag
on engine with air on but if you can do
without it, the mileage improves from
20 to 26mpg. Lots of storage and room
for cargo; better than my RX330 but not
nearly as quiet and smooth riding. But
at 1/2 the price, the Mazda is a better
value. Long term reliability/cost is
the issue and only time will tell which
is the better value.
Best FeaturesAuto dimming mirror with temp and compass; huge center console; flat rear storage and volume; spunk; 50/50 diff lock; rear window or hatch access; and looks
Worst FeaturesCumbersome shifter and Sound proofing (there is none! YOu can hear the radio on the outside at the same level as inside when windows are up!) Gas mileage but same is true of all SUVs.
