What a great SUV! by SuzyQ on 05/14/2014. Trim: 2008 Mazda Tribute i Grand Touring 4WD, Owned 6 years.
Pros: My Tribute has been great! It handles great in the snow, and has done a great job of towing my toys. It doesn't have the blind spots that some vehicles have.
Cons: There needs to be a place to hang dry cleaning, and it needs handles over the door.
Overall review: I wish they were still making it, because I'd by another in a heartbeat.

My Twuk. by Cy on 11/09/2012. Trim: 2008 Mazda Tribute s Touring FWD, Owned 4 years.
Pros: I bought this brand new and have loved it almost all the time. It takes off quickly and handles beautifully. It's very comfortable for the driver and there are all these spaces within reach for glasses, napkins, cell phone, cups, and "stuff". The backseat is very comfortable for full sized adults which is usually not the case. Feels open, vision is not blocked. Car runs great and, knocking on wood here, I have had no mechanical issues though I've been driving this thing hard for over 4 years. And I love the color. It's apple green and easy to find in a parking lot full of burgundy, black, white, and beige cars.
Cons: The vehicle is so light that the tires don't get much traction. It slides easily in weather so invest better tires. Also, I wish it had the "oh, crap" handles over the passenger doors for holding onto. And the brakes are soft. They work just fine but you have to get used to using way more foot pressure.
Overall review: I've loved this car and have no intention of trading it in. I am investing in the maintenance as recommended and I am buying new all terrain tires for better traction but I love my twuk. If they were still making it in this color, I might consider upgrading to a new one someday.
