Older but reliable and loved 2003 Mazda tribute.

2003 Mazda Tribute LX

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.

My vehicle is a trouper! It is tough & . Looks fine.

2003 Mazda Tribute LX

The vehicle is consistent and runs well for almost 200,000 miles on it. Very little high end maintenance and has kept me going to work. The body is in good shape for 16 years old, interior is very sturdy, holds up to two English mastiffs! Handles very well for the size vehicle it is, quite nimble in traffic & on the tollways.
