Older but reliable and loved 2003 Mazda tribute.

My 2003 Mazda tribute has been a great SUV. It has been dependable and long lasting through the years. I have had to replace alternator, wheel bearings and various hoses and filters. My 2003 Mazda tribute can sometimes be a labor intensive vehicle to work on. Due to the anatomy of the car for some repairs the car mechanic took several hours to repair the broken part. The fabric on the doors and ceilings have not held up well and have fallen or fallen completely off over time. The buttons and knobs on radio dial did not age well either but still works fine. The screen on my 2003 Mazda tribute also is broken and will randomly work and not work. My 2003 Mazda tribute is roomy enough for me and my y'all husband. I currently have one car seat and can still sit comfortably two other people in the backseat. The trunk space of my 2003 Mazda tribute is very spacious and deep. Overall my 2003 Mazda tribute has been wonderful I currently have almost 200,000 miles and am considering purchasing another Mazda product in the future.

Wish I hadn't bought it but it wasn't all bad

Bought my pearl white Mazda Tribute in 2014 from a shady used car lot in Omaha Nebraska. I was just looking for a good reliable vehicle and I had to stop and I noticed it was running very quite. Needed a new windshield and I gave Sam a check for 3750.00 well below the asking price. I had many issues with the coil packs until a mechanic was able to fix them in 2016 since then the door handle on the driver side rear has stopped working and the paint has been peeling off from the roof and now the backhatch and I have also replaced the hinges on the back hatch. The rear door seals are not good and too expensive to replace seat heater is nice and it has never been stuck in the snow. I do like the interior leather seats but the center council lid has cracked and has been taped with packing tape since 2016, heard that you can get a replacement cover for it. I have enjoyed this vehicle for the last 5 years and I am ready to sell it.

A reliable small SUV that can handle any weather.

My Tribute has been a very reliable vehicle. Other than regular wear and tear items I have yet to run into any major problems at 170k miles. There are some engineering issues but I have run into those with any modern car. For example the standard procedure to change the alternator requires the removal of an axle and all the steps that entails. This Tribute is amazing in the snow. I have driven on 8 inches of unplowed roads with no trouble at all. When it operates this well there is not much else to say on the subject. The vehicle rides smoothly at all speeds and is comfortable on long trips as well. I have no complaints about this vehicle and would buy it all over again.
