Pros: "See #3 above"

Cons: "Unsatisfactory mpg."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"This is the best car I've owned, however, the mpg is the only reason I'm looking at buying another vehicle; I need something more fuel efficient! Otherwise, it's very comfortable, great sound system, enjoyed the sound system, minimal outside noise, very unlike smaller vehicles where you get a lot of road noise in the cabin."

Pros: "leg room, head room, smooth on the road"

Cons: "lights don't come on automatically, no hand grips"

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

"27 mpg, great comfort, lots of leg room and very reliable. The biggest drawback is that to get one now you have to buy a Ford, but if it is a great as the Mazda, well worth it."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"This is a nice mid-size SUV and one of the few we could find with a standard transmission (really detest automatics!). It has good cargo space w/o being over-sized. It cruises nicely on the interstate and doesn't get bad gas mileage. The ride is quite comfortable and fits my 5'1" frame. It did quite well on snowy roads during our recent horrible winter."

"I have been driving a base model tribute for about 6 years now and I truly do love it. At 65k, I have not had to do any sort of mechanical work on it. The only issue I have encountered is with the power window motors failing and needing to be replaced. I have replaced all 4 of the units but apparently it isn't a widespread issue as there isn't any report on this being a defect from Mazda (Though with all 4 failing, I would think I am not the only one to have this issue). The Tribute handles really well and gets decent MPG in town, though it is far better on the highway. Fairly low-maintenance vehicle, able to carry quite an array of cargo with the back seats folded down, and is just an overall decent & reliable vehicle to have."

"Being the last year of the Tribute we got lucky. There is ample room no matter where you sit although the back seats are not the most comfortable. But for what we got it for I can't really complain. The overall fuel economy is just as good as our car from before with just about under 30 mpg combined which is great for a little suv. The interior controls are easy to use, but the only downside is if you wanted to replace the radio there really isn't a way that you can. The HVAC controls are integrated. The build quality is also good, as there aren't any rattles or noise. The stock muffler isn't the quietest on the outside but can't be heard on the inside at all. There are other suv's out there, but none as cheap as this."
