Vehicle2005 Mazda Tribute i Fwd 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI have 50,000 miles on our Tribute and I must say that I have been disappointed in the gas mileage (nowhere near what was rated). I purchased the 4 cyl to get better milage but often get below 20. The 4 cyl isn't quite enough power for this vehicle. When it is loaded down and the AC is running it can't pull small hills without shifting down. The seat material shows every spot and has to be cleaned very often. But the price was right compared to the Ford Escape twin. Much of the features would have cost more on the Ford version.
Best FeaturesPrice. Dark tinted windows. Alloy wheels. Good looking truck like SUV body.
Worst FeaturesThe seatbelt beeper is way too loud and frequent.(drives me crazy) Needs better seat material. There is not a switch to turn on the dome lights without reaching up and behind. Rear cupholder is too low for kids in carseats, gets kicked often.
