You'll Like The 2009 Mazda Tribute If...

Drivers who prefer a compact SUV with boxy and bold visual traits could well find the Tribute more appealing than competitors like the Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue or Saturn VUE.

Best visibility in an SUV.

I love my Tribute! Its reliable and comfortable. I have had very few problems with it even with it being ten years old. It does not have all the bells and whistles it could have but I barely miss them with how great the car is in general. This car has the best visibility and the thought of buying another one at any point scares me because I know i'll never be able to find one with the same visibility as this one. I also love how reliable this car is. Its so well built and has very few problems. The only issue I have run into is a faulty tire pressure light.

Makes a safe, spacious, family vehicle.

Vehicle is decent on gas. Has plenty of room we are able to for two cars seats in it with room do it makes a good family car. It is almost 10 years old and we are having a number of problems with it. Mist issues we have been able to fix ourselves but for others that are not very knowledgeable about cars this would have been extremely expensive. The muffler has falling off and needed to be replaced along with a number of belts. Overall it's a good vehicle that can be driving in snow and rain well.

Great price, reliable, known brand, low maintenance.

My vehicle is reliable, good on gas, very roomy, repair cost are low. Able to take my car to any mechanic to get it fix. Mazda is a known brand that is reliable. Consumers get a lot of value for the type of vehicle they purchase. I have a SUV, but it is good on gas. Consumer report gives my vehicle a good review, no recalls, so the vehicle is safe. A variety of colors are available. You can customize the colors you want, interior and exterior. Mazda has a large variety of models to pick from.
