Vehicle2004 Mazda Tribute ES-V6 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewI own an ES-V6 model, and I would call
this "The Sports Cars of SUVS." I think
the Tribute out-classes the Ford
Escape. The tribute has a more nicer
interior than the Escape, as well as
many more standard features. The Zoom-
Zoom really shows. A peppy DOHC 24
valve 201 horsepower 3.0 liter V6 is
fun to drive. The car is very
comfortable and sporty. Great stereo on
ES-V6 models. Handles more like a car
than an SUV. Feels more capable and
sportier than our $34,000 2003 Jeep
Grand Cherokee Laredo. Great off-road
capability. I would recommend this SUV
over the Ford Escape, Isuzu Rodeo,
Honda CRV, and Honda Pilot. I love the
Best FeaturesFavorite features include power sunroof, leather seating, reclining back seat, power front driver seat, fender mounted turning signal, easy to reach hazard button, fog lights as bright as driving lights, and a peppy DOHC 24-valve V6.
Worst FeaturesThe shifter is in the way of tuning radio stations. I would like it if they would put it on the console. Another 40 horsepower or so.....and the Tribute would be a screamer!!! I would also like it if they had a full tilt steering wheel.
