Our Second Mazda Tribute
By The McMillers on


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


We have a 2003 Mazda Tribute, and was so impressed with it, that we purchased a second one this year. 4WD handling is very sure-footed. Gas mileage is not a problem (if you read the reviews before you made the purchase) -- but not 12 mpg or anything extreme like that. Typically, 17/21 mpg city/hwy. The Tribute is excellent for towing too. Nice big moonroof and warm leather seats. Design is better in the 2005 versus the 2003 (gear-shift and air conditioning redesigned!). Cargo space is roomy, and the fold-down seats are easy to use. A little noisy, but highly recommended.

Best Features

Towing capability, roominess and power, all better than expected for a lower- priced SUV.

Worst Features

Cabin noise.
