Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Mazda Tribute 4x4?
The Tribute was not on sale for very long as a new car in the UK, and relatively few were sold, so it's not that easy to form a complete picture of whether there are any consistent problems. However, owners are almost all very positive about the car's reliability, and Mazda cars generally do pretty well in our surveys.
Figures from Warranty Direct consistently put them among the most reliable models and in the past Mazda has finished top in our Reliability Survey for four years, only dropping to second place in 2005.
