Very good on gas reliable and smooth driving. Nice seats no issues ever. It is easy to handle. Nothing ever goes wrong I had to actually get a new starter due to my nephew. Other than that the cars nice I would suggest buying one. My next car of choice would be a Mustang when I retire from my future job.

My vehicle's very comfortable smooth riding the only thing I would say that it would need to have longer seat belts because some people are taller and bigger than others. That was one of the problems that I was having cuz I am a big girl. But other than that I really love my car I bought it last year and I'm almost done paying the payments it's been a good car to me so far yet with a little wear and tear is hearing there that's normal for used car

I really love my car is very comfortable ride smooth and no problems. Is very comfortable and most of the time reliable. I had vacuum line problems with it where wouldn't crank at one time but as soon as I fixed it I had no problems. The only thing I have wrong with it now is that it need new struts

A good all around SUV. Great towing options handle even U-Haul's largest trailer. My first engine lasted almost two hundred thousand miles before needing replaced but the car was worth the replacement. Air conditioning compressor is a constant weak point as these get older though.

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.

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.
