The story of my most amazing 2006 Mazda tribute.

From the beginning I have always loved that car!! It has a c. D. Player & air conditioning, which is paramount on a trip in the summer. We have been very fortunate with this car in that it has not needed much maintenance, just oil changes & checking the other fluids. I would buy another Mazda based on how excellent this one has performed.

Mazda good and reliable car.

I love that the Mazda its very good performing car know there is a couple of things I like from my Mazda number one on my list would be how it has a lot of space in the trunk also its very hard to find my car around because there is not a lot of four cylinder car around I do like how I could adjust my stuff with one push of a button.

Would not say it is an interesting detail, the vehicle is dependable.

It does not have all the latest features as it is 12 years old, but is comfortable and easy to operate. It has normal modern safety features and I feel safe in the vehicle. It holds the road well and has enough power for me and my needs. I keep up the general maintenance and it has given me very few problems.

Safety Recalls (1)

Visibility > Windshield Wiper/washer > Motor Nov 14, 2005
Report Receipt Date:
Nov 14, 2005
NHTSA Campaign:
05V525000
Summary:
ON CERTAIN TRUCKS AND SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, THE WINDSHIELD WIPER MOTOR MAY HAVE BEEN PRODUCED WITHOUT GREASE APPLIED TO THE OUTPUT SHAFT GEAR.
Consequence:
AFTER A PERIOD OF CONTINUOUS USE ON THE HIGH SPEED SETTING, LACK OF GREASE ON THE OUTPUT SHAFT GEAR MAY CAUSE THE GEAR TEETH TO DISTORT OR FRACTURE DURING OPERATION RESULTING IN THE LOSS OF WIPER FUNCTION. INOPERATIVE WIPERS UNDER INCLEMENT WEATHER CONDITIONS COULD CAUSE A CRASH DUE TO IMPAIRED VISIBILITY.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE WIPER MOTOR FOR THE PRESENCE OF GREASE AND GREASE THE WIPER MOTOR GEARS IF NECESSARY. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON NOVEMBER 30, 2005. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT MAZDA AT 1-800-222-5500.
