What's the used Mazda Tribute 4x4 like?

The Mazda Tribute was jointly developed with the Ford Maverick, and shares the same two petrol engines: a 2.0-litre or 3.0-litre V6 with a standard automatic gearbox. Uniquely for a car of this age, there are two- and four-wheel-drive versions of the 2.0-litre car.

Despite the car's off-road image, it's more at home on the road, although it's not that great there. Despite good steering and a decent ride, there's too much body roll.
