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


This SUV is wonderful. The V6 makes all the RAV4 and CRV's green no matter the color ordered. For about the same price as a cramped and bouncy RAV4 I got this Tribute with many more features options and the Tribute actually has a rear bumper. This Mazda is a really usable size too. At work we ride to lunch and get to see each other's vehicles. The RAV4 is more like a mini-micro-SUV in comparison. It has a 4 cylinder engine which idles so fast when cold that it jerks when you put it in drive while the smooth Mazda V6 feels like a much more expensive vehicle. Do yourself a tremendous favor and drive a Tribute before you spend too much on a RAV4 or CRV. We have two Tributes now and love them

Best Features

The smooth powerful V6. The usable size but not a giant gas hog or mini-micro make-believe SUV. The 6-disk audio system. The side and side-curtains for safety. Rides much smoother than RAV4s which bounce too much.

Worst Features

Light right at ignition key to help locate it at night. Larger pockets in doors for storage.
