Emiley's experience with Tribute

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


This is our 2nd Tribute, we had a 2002.
We never liked the column shift on our
2002, 2005 moved it where it belongs,
middle console. Milage has slipped from
22 to 19. The Tribute has lots of room
for a smaller SUV. We drive our Tribute
in Northern Wisconsin and it handles
well in snow, never came close to
slowing down in deep snow. The noise at
higher speeds seems better than our
2002. The interior looks great and the
radio has 190 watts with 7 speakers
gives great sound to what ever music
you like. Do not feel Mazda had enough
colors to pick from and do not like
smaller size trailer hitch.

Best Features

Great 190 watt 7 speaker radio. Shift moved to center counsel. Interior looks great, seats comfortable, heats well for Northern Wisconsin driving. Snow driving seems no problem.

Worst Features

More colors to pick from, larger size trailer hitch, easier wire connecting for electrical in towing trailer.
