I love my Mazda tribute! It is big, comfortable, good mileage, and safe!

I have had no problems at all with my tribute. I wish perhaps I had better gas mileage as with a little economy car, but I would rather fill up more often and have the safety and security of my bigger, heavier tribute. Driver’s seat comfy and big, dashboard set up nicely for easy viewing and access. I have plenty of room for 3 in back seat - comfy seats, plenty of legroom, good airflow. The large trunk/back area is good and roomy. I love being able to fold down passenger seats for more hauling room - even more room when I take the back seats out! Good/plenty of windows gives me good viewing all around my vehicle. I love having sensors in the back to help guide me in backing up. I slowly stopped at a red light with several other vehicles; the new Toyota Camry behind me did not. I heard tires squealing as she tried to stop but she crashed into my rear-end. All I felt was a slight bump. Her car was totaled - front end crushed, front tires buckled into and under front end, windshield destroyed. Her airbags deployed and she was unable to get out because front doors on both sides were buckled and crushed. All I had was a slight dent on rear bumper and my spare tire was knocked down from where Camry hit me! I used to get side-swiped, run out of my lane, run off the road in my Honda Civic. That never happens to me now. Never. I am so much safer in my tribute; I can see so much better driving now.

Mazda reliability. My tribute is a reliable, everyday vehicle.

My Mazda is very reliable. I have had hardly any trouble with it. I have replaced one battery in seven years. I have replaced four tires- primarily because my car sits outside summer and winter. She starts no matter how cold it is, and on the first turn of the ignition. Steers easily in snow. Holds the road well in all kinds of weather. Comfortable seating for all day trips. The only thing I do not have is a rear noise system motion system--whatever it is called- so I must be extremely careful backing up. That is really the only drawback of the vehicle.

Good basic SUV at very reasonable cost.

Not enough power, since I had a v-6 in the previous vehicle. However, I find this SUV quiet and comfortable compared to my previous Ford Escape. This is a basic model I-sport, FWD and four cylinder. A/c works well. No apparent rattling or failures due to it is age, seven years.

That I have never had any mechanical problems with my Mazda at all.

I love my vehicle my Mazda. I have never had to have anything replaced and it is still running great. It is roomy and plenty of space for everyone and the backseat folds to make cargo room.

Everyone should know that it looks and runs good.

I like that it is roomy. It also is fuel efficient. I do not like the windows being tinted so dark. I like that it runs smoothly.

Minor repairs add up, but overall pretty reliable

Comfortable car with ample room for my needs. Have faced multiple minor but not insignificant repair bills.

- Chris R

It's the perfect size for me and my family. I love that it has tons of room and I'm able to put the seats down if I don't have enough trunk space. I've put over 250,000 miles on it and it still runs very well. Easy to drive, mirrors are big and lots of legroom.

It's great for road trips and high enough off the ground that every little pothole doesn't hurt the car.

It is just like the Ford Escape.

It is high enough to get in without any trouble. It has a lot of room to haul stuff. Not to bad on gas.

- Marilyn P

handles very well and has tons of room for passengers as well as loading things to move.

love how it drives and gas mileage and storage space but my AC has broken twice

Poor gas mileage achieved on this car on the highway.

Love the spaciousness of the truck. Hate the gas mileage that it gets.
