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


This is my second Tribute and third SUV, no longer have the need for a 4x4 station wagon. Overall its been good (28,000miles), looking to trade it, seems to have a terrible trade in value, even towards a new Mazda sedan. Ford builds this zoom-zoom suv and they put on the worst tires, Continental Contra If I ever buy another car with Continental tires, I'm having them include new tires in the price. Gas mileage isn't great especially at $3.00 a gallon. With the 4x4 on, we're looking at 12 to 13mpg. You have to wonder, why did they stop making the EXCURSION?

Best Features

Nice warm leather seats,100amp stereo not bad even by a teenager's ears.

Worst Features

Hate the tires, needs lock on the tailgate, shorter shift, hate the brake dust on the front rims ... drives me nuts!
