Lemon is the color of my Tribute

2004 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


At 5000 miles (3mos)-started hearing
strange noise when car was cold-found
out steering seals were installed wrong
and rack and pinion steering needed
replacement. As soon as that was
repaired-noticed vibration and rushing
sound with acceleration-determined that
it needed a new transmission. Went in
for transmission repair and found out
that the bolt holding the transmission
was only in by two threads and
transmission could have fallen off.
Obviously a bad day at the factory-
what's next-I am scared to drive it!

Best Features

Like the way it looks and handles when it is running

Worst Features

Better quality control off the assembly line-we could have been killed on the highway if the transmission fell off.
