2004 Mazda Tribute Overview

For the 2004 model year, Mazda's compact Tribute SUV was available in three trim lines, each of which was available with either two-wheel-drive (through the front wheels) or four-wheel-drive. The entry-level DX model was powered by a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine that produced 130 horsepower, while the mid-level LX and high-end ES versions came with a 3.0-liter V6 engine that generated 201 horsepower.
A five-speed manual transmission was standard on the DX, while the LX and ES models were equipped with a four-speed automatic transmission.
Standard features for all models included air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, power steering, dual front airbags, a keyless entry system, a tilt steering wheel, and an AM/FM stereo system with a CD player.
The LX added side airbags, cruise control, steering-wheel-mounted controls, and fog lights, while the ES version added leather seats, power-adjustable front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and anti-lock brakes.
Drivers liked the Tribute's responsive handling, smooth ride, interior roominess, solid feel, storage capabilities, and affordable price, but thought the seats could be more comfortable and the shifter could be sluggish.
