Pros: "Grab a used one, can't go wrong"

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

"Have had this vehicle for 9 years, lived in 4 different states, driven it for a living in outside sales, gone from coast to coast and have never had a major repair. Rides like a car, has the get up and go power of a sports car with it's V6 engine. I heard they stopped making them...that's a shame best vehicle I've ever owned. Does drink a lot of gas but that's the only thing wrong. Common 270,000 + miles how can you complain."

"I have a Mazda Tribute S that requires new PCM and exhaust system. The service station is telling me not to repair - not worth value of the vehicle. Is there anyone out there who likes to work with cars interested in buying this - the body is in perfect condition and I hated giving up on it. Let me know - Thanks"

Pros: "reliable, great visability, fun to drive"

Cons: "road noise on highways"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I love this car and have been driving it for ten years. Minimal problems and kept it maintained well; changed the oil every 3K miles. Has been reliable and a great "run around" vehicle. Has some road noise, but at the time I bought it it was top of the line. I hate to part with it, but would like a few more luxuries at this time of my life. I really hate to part with it, but it is time for me to pass it on."
