Wonderful 4 door family car

2008 Mazda Tribute Sport

The Mazda Tribute is a four door vehicle perfect for families with five or less people. Has great four wheel drive with comfortable seating all around. Dislikes about the vehicle is that the AC blows really high or you can barely feel it. I love that the vehicle is fully carpeted and that the seating is cotton and not leather. I have had it for over 10 years so the lining of the top is coming off near the windshield. The steering wheel has its wear and tear. Great feature is that the vehicle does have is putting the whole back seat down for extra room. It has a great big trunk area. This vehicle is perfect for families of all ages.

Workhorse unreliable in bad weather

2008 Mazda Tribute Sport

My car has a lot of electrical problems. The over comfort level of the interior is comfortable. I bought it used with 140,000 miles on it. I drove it from NY to Texas. It tends to have electrical problems in heavy rain. It is a workhorse but not the most reliable vehicle if you get stuck in some bad weather. The back seats fold down flat. It is great for moving things. The handling is not the best. For what I paid for it I am pleased.

The car has some kinks but all used cars do

2008 Mazda Tribute Sport

My car is an average car. These car is used to just get me through college. It was my first car and was bought used. The car runs fine except the brakes are a little shaky. The best part about the car is that it's an SUV and has a lot of room. The car does well around town but I'm afraid long road trips are over due to ware and tare over the years

My SUV is the best. My husband and I always use my Tribute on outings.

2008 Mazda Tribute Sport

White Mazda Tribute. I love my SUV, I've had it for 3 years now and it's so dependable. My Tribute is the main vehicle in our household. The roominess and comfort of this vehicle makes it our favorite when traveling. I have had to have the transmission replaced due to age, but it runs so good. I could never part with my Tribute.

The body shape is the same as a Ford Escape

2008 Mazda Tribute Sport

Reliable SUV, features include spacious cabin, large fuel tank and decent gas efficiency. I have had this vehicle for almost 2 years and have confidence it is well made. The seats are comfortable, radio and speakers work well and the dashboard light is adjustable.

Extremely Reliable vehicles

2008 Mazda Tribute Sport

Very good and reliable. Minimal repairs just regular wear and tear. Very efficient with miles per gallon. Got it used with 106 thousand miles and it now has 214 thousand miles and it still in great condition and running. Would greatly recommend to everyone.

- Marisol C

Very reliable and runs well even with 165000 miles.

2008 Mazda Tribute Sport

My 2008 Mazda Tribute is extremely reliable. It now 169000 miles and runs like new. Only small problems with rear hatch window not staying up after it is opened and air conditioner works on only two speeds. We own two Tributes and we love both of them.
