The Mazda tribute would a great car for a newly driver.
I found out if you do not put the correct parts for the vehicle it will break other parts in the vehicle. I wish it had lights around the rear view mirror. When pumping gas at different gas stations the car will act like the gas tank is full but it's not there's a sensor that goes bad often. Different gas pumps and different stations also matters. The ride of the vehicle is great. I would definitely recommend this vehicle to a first time driver.
