2009 Mazda Tribute Review

Navigate through all life's unexpected road conditions the 2009 Mazda Tribute. This versatile vehicle is equipped with four-wheel independent suspension so that handling is a cinch in real and concrete jungles. Helping to empower your active lifestyle is a spirited yet fuel-efficient 153 Horse Power 2.3L DOHC 16-valve tried and proven MZR engine matched to a smooth-shifting 4-speed automatic transmission. Better still with available features like a potent 200 Horse Power V6 Active Torque Control Coupling four-wheel-drive system and maybe even a Towing Package you’ll love being able to switch between playmate and workhorse at a moment’s notice. The Mazda Tribute’s interior offers so many thoughtful comfortable and versatile standard features and options. Slide behind the wheel and the first thing you’ll notice aside from the excellent driving position is how well the cockpit reflects its sporty Mazda heritage. All the controls are well-positioned to make your “work driving” fun and your “fun driving” a blast. You’ll also be surprised by how far your dollar goes when you see the Tribute’s generous offering of standard features.such as Roll Stability Control and Traction Control System. This SUV will take you and your family anywhere though your favorite destination may just be the Tribute itself.
