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.
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!
my aunt has this car and, i've driven it and its great. worth the money comfortable and overall just fun to drive. all mazdas are fun to drive.
