Over all, the tribute is doing fine. I'm not really impressed with the gas mileage. It has handled great in the snow. But now that I've had it for a few months, I realized the lack of 'Standard' features...power locks on both front door panels not just the drivers door panel, automatic headlights, and doors that lock automatically when the car is in motion and a drivers door that unlocks when in park! The other issue I have is a lack in selection of frequency of the wiper blades and the thermostat settings, esp with the heat...it's either very warm or cool, nothing in between. But like I mentioned it has handled well, so far.
We bought our Tribute because of the reliablity of our other 2 Mazdas, but oh boy all I can say it WOW am I impressed. I drive about 800 miles a week . I have had to replace the brakes,and now the struts and change oil at 3,000 miles since it was new.I would not change anything about this fun to drive,cheap to operate, machine of mine. I am considering giving this one to the kids at 200k and get a new one just like it.
My 2004 Mazda Tribute is my first SUV. I am an older lady and health issues make it difficult to bend over/into a standard car trunk to unload packages. I wanted a wagon or SUV for easier unloading but did not want anything too large or high off the ground. The Tribute is compact but with great cabin space, handles very well & easy to maneuver in our area's severe winter. I've driven several long trips (2,000+ miles each) and the Tribute is smooth, comfortable & responsive on the highway. I also think it's one of the most stylish SUVs on the road, much better-looking than its cousin, the Ford Escape/Mercury Mariner (same body frame). Mazda warranty has been very good and thorough in covering minor problems and took care of a recall issue flawlessly. I would definitely recommend this car!
