I just got my Tribute after looking at them for many years. I love the space of the vehicle. The drive is so smooth and the pick up of the engine is excellent - there is a reason for the zoom zoom commercials! The backseat is as comfortable as the front - very roomy. You won't feel that you are driving a big truck but you are higher up. This is my 3rd Mazda and based on my experience the quality of the car is excellent! Well worth the month
It performs like a trooper and handled very well in the snow and ice this winter. It's downfall is that the seats are like riding on cloth-covered boards. Amenities without plush is no fun. The gas mileage is right-on at about 20 mpg for most fill-ups. There is plenty of space to cart things around.
Pros: The Tribute is overall quite roomy for a smaller SUV. I am especially pleased with the gas mileage, which has been about 23 mpg city driving. It's an attractive vehicle, more so than the Ford Escape which is a similar car. I like sitting up high, and sometimes I even sit higher than people in a larger SUV. The ride is smooth and steady, and acceleration is no problem.
Cons: The front seats are not as roomy as they should be. My knee rests against the side of the door, which is uncomfortable. The car is kind of noisy, but I've read that that can be attributed to the brand of tires that comes on the car.
Overall, I like this car more everyday and I would buy it again given the choice.
