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


I traded in a 2004 Mitsubishi Outlander for my Tribute S and I love it. While the gas mileage in the 3.0 V6 is not as good as my Mitsu was, the comfort, interior design, and smooth power delivery make up for it. The ground clearance and elevated seating positions make it great for highway driving. The S models come really well equipped and with anti-lock brakes and side impact airbags and side air curtains, I feel very safe.

Best Features

7 speaker premium audio system with 6CD changer, nice leather seats, interior design, exterior looks, seat comfort is awesome!

Worst Features

Steering wheel mounted audio controls, and put a power port in the rear cargo area! Also, the cruise control buttons on the steering wheel feel cheap when compared to the build quality of the rest of the interior. Better fuel economy out of the V6.
