Gas Hog & Rattle Trap
By christi on


2006 Mazda Tribute s 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Purchased used with only 600 mile so it was pretty much new. 1 year later I have spent 600.00 for brakes and my tires need to be changed already. I average 14 mpg in my V6 so is really is a gas hog. When gas was at its highest I was putting 63.00 every 3 to 4 days, I am not happy with the mileage at all. I thought it was pretty good in the beginning but now I drive 80 on the freeway the whole thing shakes. The resale value is terrible. The value 13 months later is about 8000.00 and I paid 17000 for a used. Will never purchase a Mazda ever again.

Best Features

Roomy for a small SUV

Worst Features

Add some features to this SUV, very plain and basic, does not have anything above plain! no auto lights does even give you the outside temperature, those 2 features are standard in most cars now. I purchased the S model and that's supposed to be a step up from the i model.
