2002 Mazda tribute review-great first time driver car!

My Mazda tribute is a great local, as well as traveler car. I can very comfortable support 2 or 3 for a camping or beach trip. Although I've been able to pack for and drive 5 from Oregon to Idaho for 6 hours. Had minimal issues with it and I bought it used. Gas mileage is not perfect, but for the size of the car so pretty good! I fill up my tank once a wheel for 30 to 40 bucks and that takes me to and from work and school.

It is cheaper to repair than a lot of cars because the insides are Ford parts.

The Mazda tribute has been an awesome car! While having the size and space of an SUV (I have moved multiple times with this car!) It is also kind of petite so it fits in small spaces lots of SUVs cannot. It has had few repair issues and those it has have been cheap to repair because the insides are Ford parts, not foreign. It gets good gas mileage for it is size and is great for trips. I love my tribute!

I believe that I would love to have it in another color and a lot newer.

Well let's start by saying that for bring close to 200, 000 miles its pretty durable. It is leaking steering fluid and I have a dent in it because my father put it there on accident. I think it was on purpose. I wish I had leather but it pretty cozy. The ac works awesome but the heat sometimes lacks. The breaks are not that great but I make due with what I got. It serves its purpose.

Recall Apr 4, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
Apr 4, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V174000
Summary:
Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2001-2004 Tribute vehicles manufactured May 22, 2000, through December 19, 2003, originally sold, or currently registered in, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. These vehicles may experience excessive corrosion at the forward attachment of the lower control arm.
Consequence:
A separation of the lower control arm can result in a significant loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will install a newly designed reinforcement cross-brace, free of charge. Parts are not currently available. Mazda expects to send an interim notification around May 19, 2014. When parts are available, owners will be mailed a second letter to come in to have the part installed. If customers bring their vehicles to a dealer before reinforcement crossbraces are available, dealers will inspect the subframe and either inform customers that the vehicle is safe to drive until the remedy parts are available or provide a rental vehicle until parts are available if an immediate repair is needed. Owners may contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 7514D.
