2008 Mazda Tribute i Sport 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


I bought my Mazda Tribute 2008 after owning a Chevy Malibu. I have owned this car since Nov. 2007. I have the 4cyl, manual. I have put 46,000 miles on it. It lacks in acceleration and power. The engine is very weak. This is the last time I buy a 4cyl. car. It looks like a real SUV and not the silly bubble which everyone seems to love today. When I first bought the car, a tank of gas=425 miles. This has dramatically dropped to 390 miles. I have kept up with all of its maintenance schedules. I have driven from IL to NY. I take it up and down the Midwest. Smooth and comfortable ride. Needs more power I have two children and plan to grow the family. Not large enough for three kids.

Best Features

Smooth ride. Very comfortable in long trips. Love the manual(wish they had it on the 6 cyl.).

Worst Features

Needs much more engine power. Like American cars, it should have a "trip" computer as standard equipment. Day time running lights.
