2004 Mazda Tribute DX Fwd 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Overall, not a bad vehicle. Never owned a Mazda and after this may go back later on. NOT very comfortable on lower back for cross country trips. Own 5 speed 4 cylinder engine. Performs ok for size. Shifting can be difficult especially for reverse. Upsides - roomy cargo area, better than average front leg room. Handles well at speed. If you buy a Tribute, go for a v6 engine. Not bad gas mileage for an SUV, averaging about 20/23.

Best Features

Vision out front and small "blind spot" than most vehicles. Stereo system is good as is dash and controls.

Worst Features

Add cruise to manual trans. Get rid of 4 cylinder.
