About Mazda Tribute

Designed for people who prefer more car-like styling in their compact SUV, the 2009 Mazda Tribute attempts to place as much emphasis on "sport" as it does on utility. As in the past, the Tribute continues to share its unit-body design, powertrains and fully-independent suspension with its corporate cousins the Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner. To help ensure broad appeal, the Tribute offers seating for five, both four-cylinder and six-cylinder engines, front or all-wheel drive and three different trim levels. The Tribute HEV Hybrid model is available in limited numbers and only in the state of California.

What's new for 2009?
2009 Mazda Tribute

For 2009, base models receive an all-new 2.5-liter four cylinder engine that has more power and better fuel economy than last year's 2.3-liter unit. The 3.0-liter V6 also sees improvements in horsepower and fuel economy. An all-new six-speed automatic is standard on all but the front-drive Tribute "i" trim.

What's new for 2008?
2008 Mazda Tribute

While far short of a full generational makeover, Mazda gave the 2008 Tribute a comprehensive visual revamping that left it with a more contemporary flavor. Effectively complementing the new look are significant feature upgrades, handling refinements and class-leading safety systems, plus a low-volume, California-only Hybrid variant.

"2008 Tribute i grand touring . It was stiff when we bought it new , but now at 37,000 miles it is a nice ride . The only down side to the vehicle is there area few things that could have been done better . Attention to detail , The carpet moves on the passenger side & we have to keep pulling it back to tuck it under ,and the weather stripping on the inside windshield was on the dash ( about 4" of it that we had to cut off ) We don't like that when you unlock the door with the keyless entry all the doors & the hatch come unlocked . Most only do the driver door & second press does the rest . The last thing was the factory tires , they made a roaring sound all the time . We put new tires on it and it stopped the noise .With that said overall a great SUV."
