Mazda tribute 2005, overall a good small SUV.

Problems with sensors, brakes releasing air, had issues with the engine. Besides that it runs good at 180k. If they wouldn't have discontinued the Mazda tribute I would consider buying a new model when I am able to. After 13 years I believe the issues I had were not that bad with everyday use.

I really like the. Style of the truck.

I love my vehicle. It has the right amount of space and I can travel without worrying about safety. I like the tires, I like the style. It is a very reliable and relaxing vehicle that comes with a sunroof and cup holders in the back. I also like the surround sound that also plays in the truck.

All in all, the Mazda tribute is a great performing, fun SUV to own.

I love my SUV, the size is perfect for me since I am very short so I like to be high up, it handles really well, corners are nice and smooth and I have a lot of power when I open her up on the highway. This is the best vehicle I've ever owned. The interior is also very nice, soft leather.

Latches/locks/linkages > Hatchback/liftgate > Lock Dec 22, 2004
Report Receipt Date:
Dec 22, 2004
NHTSA Campaign:
04V605000
Summary:
CERTAIN 2004-2005 SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES AND CERTAIN 2001-2003 SPORT UTILITY VEHICLE HAVING REAR LIFTGATE COMPONENTS SERVICED WITH 2004 EQUIVALENT COMPONENTS FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 206, 'DOOR LOCKS AND DOOR RETENTION COMPONENTS.'
