This is my third mazda that I have purchased and the last one I will ever purchase. I bought my Tribute in Sept 2004 and have had nothing but problems. Thermostat sticks but according to dealership all of them do, clunking noise when going from park to reverse, faulty airbag, tons of brake dust on all tires, loose trim that needed to be replaced, accerlator cable recall, rear hatch problems, tons of rattles and clunks. I have had my Tribute in 8 times for doors and windows that leak and it is still not fixed. Also in one year of owning my vehicle I have had it in 34 times for problems. I am now working with a lawyer because Mazda feels that leaking windows are just an "inconvienience" and that it does not affect resale value or safety of the car. Here is my question to Mazda regarding safety- my vehicle is so loud that when someone is in the backseat you cannot hear them talking. Lets say one of my children started choking and I couldnt hear them- wouldnt that be a safety issue? I worked through their mediation deparment requesting a replacement vehicle and they told me to go back to the dealer for repair. Mazdas customer care is terrible and I would not reccomend any of their vehicles to anyone. They dont care about their customers they just care about their sales!!! Once my vehicle is bought back under the lemon law I am buying from another manufacturer. Do yourself a favor dont even consider Mazda when purchasing a new vehicle- you will regret it.
