Lasts a long time, but it does feel like it is aging quickly now that it has gone in a decline. Otherwise I love this car and it is very reliable.
I love my Mazda Tribute. Most of the issues it has / I have with it are related to old age and use (i.e. needing oil changes more frequently, needing new windshield wipers, transmission checks etc). The hinges on back trunk door appear like they weren't coated or protected well because they completely fell apart into dust when I opened the window one day. The window had to be taped to the door. I think most of the features are intuitive, but as the car is ten years old it is not up to date on technology. This doesn't bother me much, but for someone who wants the latest feature this might be an issue. It has lots of room in the front and passenger seats. The trunk is not huge, but it is decent sized. The passenger seats fold down, but they don't fold down flat so they're at a weird angle that does not give you more room in your car (like you would think).
