Reliable, Roomy and fun to drive with plenty of power. The 3.0L V6 engine [designed for Ford Taurus] is much better than the 4 cylinder version & V6 model comes with a factory tow hitch bar standard. AWD (All-Wheel Drive) version is definitely worth searching for. The 4x4 option is High range only but effective for highway driving in snow, yet labeled as electric pushbutton 'wheels traction lock' (very confusing). The ride is higher than most SUVs in this class but very comfortable, improving highway vision. The 6-capacity CD Player & sound system is great! The gear shift does get in the way of the rear window defrost button and sound system volume knob, but steering wheel height can be adjusted to compensate. Large console storage compartment and individual releases for tailgate or tailgate window are handy to use.

I HAVE HAD ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEMS WHAT SO EVER. I HAVE NOT EVEN HAD TO REPLACE BRAKES YET. ONE OF THE BEST CARS I HAVE EVER OWNED.
My Tribute, My Friend
2003 Mazda TributeLinda - Olney, MD12/26/2006
My 2003 Tribute has been like a friend for our family. It's reliable, drives smoothly and very easy to maneuver. Best of all, as a high school coach, I often have to put back seats down, which can be done quickly and easily. There is plenty of room in the back for carrying many large-sized items. Overall, we've been very happy with the Tribute and would buy a Mazda again.
