I've had my Mazda for 9 years. This vehicle is so comfy for me. I'm a short girl and it fits me so well, not to big, not to tall, just right. Best car I ever had in the snow. I will drive this thing until the wheels fall off. I love it - still!
good on most accounts
2005 Mazda Tributeblowin through the snow - milwaukee, WI01/09/2009
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.
Pros and Cons
2004 Mazda TributeDenisio - Raleigh NC12/26/2007
-Seating is comfortable, front and back.
-Radio is a little far from driver (would be nice if on steering wheel), also, I tend to hit the gear shift a lot when trying to adjust the radio (My in-laws have a 2003 model that is between the seats, much better location.)
-Great cargo room, love the choice between window or entire door, helps when you are located in crammed spaces.
-Would have also like to to have automatic car door locking when car put in reverse. (But fortunately has child door locks as the doors can be open from inside even if they are locked.)
-also have problem with very squeaky power windows.
-and this v6 takes up a lot more gas then my previous one.
