Shifting issues & gas mileage
By Sandra Paris on


2010 Mazda Tribute s Grand Touring 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


Would like to comment on the shifting smoothness from 20 mph up to 40-50 mph. Car seems to hard shift on accelerating, like a drag, and on down shift, strong feeling of jerking into gears. The gas mileage seems to be hurting from this situation. No help from the dealer service manager and Mazda area rep, all say normal. No check engine light has come on. Waiting for some answers from another dealer. Have driven a 2010=6 cyl Ford escape and did not feel this odd shifting. Also, the interior has black shiny dashboard, attracts a lot of dust. Sure wish they would go back to dull finish.

Blue tooth,compass, Was told they could not install compass with back up camera. Wish I had the choice. Top of windshield where roof folds into, tacky looking finish.
