2008 Mazda Tribute i Sport 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


-4K miles Transmission cooler leaking (replaced under warranty)
-8K miles Hard shifting (serviced under warranty)
-22K miles transmission stuck in 2nd gear (covered under warranty)
-24K miles replaced front brakes and rotors (pulsating and noisy)
-Window regulator failure
-26K L+R Tie rod end replacement (warranty)
-35K engine knocking/tapping (warranty)
-35K Serpentine belt tensioner failure (warranty)
-46K Transmission shifting hard (not fixed yet)

This vehicle is horribly built. Interior is noisy from all the cheap plastics. Suspension and ride quality is really bad too. I would not recommend purchasing this, you're better off with a Kia!!

Best Features

MP3 Hook up

Worst Features

Ride, hard plastic interior, drive train, suspension...pretty much everything!
