2005 Mazda Tribute s AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


I purchased my new, 2005 Tribute
five months ago after test-driving
several larger, more expensive
SUV's, and the Ford Explorer.

The Tribute continues to impress me
every time I get behind the wheel. It's
manuverability, quiteness, handling,
and responsiveness are excellent.
The suspension provides excellent
road feel and control.

Overall, Mazda has put together a
great package in a small SUV,
combining the perfect degree of
style, performance, and comfort that I
was looking for.

I have owned two Mazda's prior to
this purchase, This is my first SUV
and I highly recommend the Tribute.

Best Features

Handling, power, smooth-shifting automatic, interior roominess, seating position (comfort) Hi-End sound system, powered sub-woofer, interval rear wiper, overall styling.

Worst Features

Assist grips above the rear doors, similar to the ones in front, would be a nice touch. Illuminating the ignition switch and glove box would also be welcomed. The "On" lamp in the A/C switch button is difficult to see during daylite. Coat hooks are needed over back doors and in hatch area.
