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


If most of your driving is in local
traffic this is not the car for you.
The sticker promised 18 mpg city
driving, I'm getting 12.5!!! When I
called both the dealership and Mazda
home office they said I had a heavy
foot (not true) or it needed more time
to break in. Well it's been 7 months
and no improvement is found, however
the highway mileage was much better then
stated. The sticker stated 21 mpg I'm
getting 26 mpg.

Best Features

Top grades for interior room. Great sound system and excellent safety features, ie; side air bags four wheel disk brakes.

Worst Features

Improve local gas economy, Windshield washers freeze in ice and snow and due to sound insulation the head from the engine doesn't thaw them out.
