transmission trouble 3 times
By Eileen Kelley on


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


I love this car but at 22,000 miles the transmission leaked; dealership put in a new transmission. Almost a year to the day the 2nd transmission with only 14,000 miles now has to be replaced again. The dealership is very rude and has an "oh well this happens" attitude. Very frustrating because what's to stop it from happening again next year? Mazda customer service is not much better. Accused me of not taking care of the car. Now the front wheel bearings are to be replaced. Haven't had much satisfaction from anyone. Am going to try Attorney General's office next.

Best Features

Everything but the transmission.

Worst Features

Change gear shift; too close to radio controls.
