2003 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 Fwd 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Having been the owner of suburbans,
this was a little bit of a change.
Besides the size and the power
differences, I never thought I would
like the smaller SUV, however driving
it has been fun and relaxing. No
fighting the traffic changing lanes.
Rides smooth. I would recommend the
Tribute.


Best Features

I like the color schemes, esp the black. There seems to be enough room for storage. I haven't had the CD changing probelms described before.


Worst Features

I have tried every way I know to adjust them and they aren't comfortable for a long trip. The lighting inside is pretty bad at night. Turning the dome light on is a hassle. But, the biggest change needed is the size of the fuel tank.

Review

this is my second.Went in for service
(sway bar links)and while it was being
fixed ended up with a new one. Had a DX
V8 4x4 now have the loaded ES
4x4.leather moonroof the works. two
years made a nice improvement,plus a
better warrantee,was looking into an
Explorer but was too pricy.Thought Id
give the Tribute one more try.The 01
had 22,000 miles when traded.


Best Features

moon roof,leather seats and stereo


Worst Features

put the damn shift on the floor,e.g.Kia Sorento,give us our own lock for the lift gate and pasenger door!turn signals on the mirrors would be a nice touch as well!

2003 Mazda Tribute LX-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I am very happy with my SUV, I look at
others but the Mazda always had my
heart! Mazda's have always been my
automaker of choice I have owned from
the 323, 626 and now the SUV Tribute.

I am always on the road and now I can
rest a sure that the SUV will be able
to handle any type of weather. I
commuite to the office over 25 miles
each way and the gas mileage is not bad!


Best Features

I have all of the toys, sunroof, air, Power steering; ABS brakes; air; cruise, tilt, Lojack; 6 cd player & tape; cargo cover;fog lights; all 4wd; alloy wheels with lug locks; factory alarm; map lights and my color: Sand! Who would or could ask for anything more.......A DVD player too!


Worst Features

auto locks, like the 626 would be a great improvement. My last vehicle was a Mazda and the important feature was the auto locks. Also, a little longer review mirror would help!

2003 Mazda Tribute LX-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

First time in a truck/SUV. Added this
car for the stuff I can't do in my
accord (hauling stuff, outdoors stuff,
etc). handles just like a car but the
suspension isn't too soft and reminds
you that you still are in a truck
(sort of) Handles/takes corners better
than my 02 accord. don't notice a
difference Engine and tranny is very
responsive and


Best Features

Premium sound system, v6, lots of head and shoulder room versus the Santa fe (at least it felt roomier, don't know about the stats).


Worst Features

MPG vs the accord but anyone who buys a SUV should be prepared for that.
