"Update of my 2004 review" by Ed from Danvers, MA on 08/17/2010. Trim: 2001 Mazda Tribute ES 4WD, Owned 6 years.
Pros: This is a 2010 update from my 9/21/04 review. The Tribute handles well and is quick with the 24v V6. The leather interior is very nice and I have gotten acceptable MPG (22 overall probably) over the years. I've liked this car a lot and bought a new '06 for home use (the 01 is my "Florida car")
Cons: Transmission (ouch) went at 70 K, both driver and passenger door handles went and had to be replaced (common in '01s), now the ABS is acting up (sensor?). I have 83K on it now and I will trade it soon.
Overall review: Good car, I have enjoyed it and it has done everything I've needed. If it weren't for the transmission failure, I'd be glowing about it.

Best SUV by John Southern Maryland on 11/06/2013. Trim: 2001 Mazda Tribute ES 4WD, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: I've had my 2001 ES-V6 for 13 years now (259,500 miles). I like the handling and steering the best about this car (zoom zoom zoom!) No major repairs - have orig engine and automatic transmission. Best vehicle I've ever had in 50 years of driving
Cons: Gas mileage could be better. I average 20 mpg on a tankful of mostly highway driving. Long trips usually get about 23 mpg.
Overall review: Excellent, dependable vehicle
