Rust Problems Here Too
By ChicagoDriver on


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


So I hate to say anything bad about my 2008 Tribute, which we just traded in last week, and I loved owning. It was a simple car without any fuss, and perfect for me! The only bad thing about it is the rust. I noticed a few other reviews mentioning this, and i found it a little too coincidental that we all have found the same rust problems. Mazda must have gotten cheap on their materials, or they stared buying steel from China. I bent down to check on my tires one day and I couldn't believe how badly rusted out the wheel well was. I traded the car in a week later.

Best Features

Great for long trips! Easy to zip around town in. Not a fussy car!

Worst Features

Use better materials! I would have kept my Tribute forever it it hadn't started rusting out after 2 years.
