"Purchased with around 100K on the odometer. Car was reliable and comfortable on long trips for about two years, but the road noise, lack of power and poor mileage got old quick. At about 115K the car started having bad mechanical issues. The ABS ring broke, the heat stopped working, the power locks stopped working, the exhaust has multiple leaks, and the front subframe collapsed from rust while being driven. I would not recommend this car as a daily driver, could be used as a winter beater."

great reliable dependable car

"Bought this SUV used. Radio died on me at 147,000 miles. It is a huge gas guzzler, I get frustrated by that cause I drive alot. May trade it in for something else, but the reliability has me re-thinking. Car payments are really low. Has alot of road noise at 65 mph. when I bought it, it had an oil leak which cose me a quite a bit to fix since they had to replace timing cover/gasket, engine oil pan/gasket and it needed front brake service. Otherwise, been a good car."

Extremely reliable vehicle.

"I purchased the Tribute new, and it is the most reliable vehicle that I have ever owned. 105,000 miles and we just now had our first mechanical problem. Other vehicles that I have owned had problems after 50k miles and were very costly to repair."

Pros: "Looks, Reliability, Power, Comfort, Premium"

Cons: "Fit & Finish of some interior components, Mileage"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Has been exceptionally reliable, only minor flaws on the interior with fit and finish of door panels and window controls. Powerful engine & acceleration for an SUV, handles corners without any problems, like Mazda marketed it, The Soul of a Sports car. If they were still making them I'd buy it again."
