Pros: The styling and the stereo
Cons: NONEOur Mazda in 5 years has still not been in the shop! We have the 4 cyl and it has plenty of power and gets great mileage. Also, the fit and finish is perfect.
never had a better vechile
Pros: space, handling, ride, styling, being able to see all around the SUV
Cons: priceI started out with the 626 and was very pleased.Traded for the Mazda 6, supurbe handling and perfrormance. Then I bought the Tribute sport 4 door. Don't think I will ever buy another kind anless it is changed in a way ro reduce performance
Pros: cruise control ..easy to find and use
Cons: visor is too short when used to block side sun
Advice: has spent no time in shop during first year unlike my friend's HyundaiPlenty of pickup....great mileage....i have the v-6 and get 30 highway and 22 city... good head room... amazing sound system.. plenty of carry room... ignition should be higher on the column..keys bump the knee...
Pros: the style, the size ,the comfort and the handling.
Cons: the emergency brake placement
Advice: good car, you'll like it.On the plus side :The Tribute is a pretty looking vehicle,has all the comforts and the room of a large/midsize SUV,it has a powerful 6cyl engine,excellent pickup,and handles very well.The privacy glass for the back seat and cargo areas is a definite plus. It is solid, with good lines, easy to get in and out and the seating is very comfortable all around. On the other hand: It's noisy against the road, the emergency brake should have been put on the driver side of the center console instead of the front passenger side. The cruise control is fine except that finding it at night is a chore. But overall is an excellent vehicle, I give it a 4 1/2 stars.
