This has been a great vehicle for a small family. We finally have enough space to take everything we need, with room to spare! If we could fit one more person into it, it would be perfect (seats 4 comfortably, 5 is ok).
The only reason for a 4 rating on the comfort is that one of us is only 5'2" and has a little trouble getting in and out of the front seat at times. The other factor is that there is a ridge as you get in and out that can catch your foot occasionally.
I discovered how well it handles on a recent road trip when a really large possum appeared in the road. I managed to veer around it, leave the road, get back on the road and never lose control at 70 mph. (hitting the possum was not an option,; daughter has a toy one that is named!)
Gas mileage is about the same as for our 2005 Ford Taurus, between 19 and 25 mpg.
We have gotten our money's worth out of this vehicle and more. I highly recommend this to small families or people who need cargo space and economy.

2005 Mazda TributeJJ - Hyattsville09/21/2007
This SUV is really a SUV it`s nothing small about it pushing out 200 hp and 193 ft pound of torque OMG this SUV is nice better get it before I do and they make with Ford very nice SUV rides like a car
I love my new 2003 Tribute! - It offers a quiet smooth ride and is fun to drive. my only real complaint so far is that the gear shift is in the way of of the volume/power button on the radio/cd. For a small SVU, this is perfect for 1-2 people. The 15 mpg i've gotten w/ city driving has been a bit disappointing though as it is rated 19/25.
