2009 Mazda Tribute Hybrid , I've only had it 3 months and so far there's been no major problems.I love the fact that when you're sitting in traffic or at a red light that seems to last forever you're not wasting gas or pumping out pollutants.The stereo has an aux input, something I find essential for mp3 player and dvd audio.The display that tells you things like average mpg and miles left till empty is cool.The average mpg so far is only up to 27.8 which is less than I expected but that could be because someone in the family has a lead foot...honey! One of the things I'd change about it are an extra row of seats would be nice, at the moment you have to pay an another $10k for a Highlander to get that. The other thing is the styling, it's very brick-like, I prefer the sleeker looks of the crossovers, although you do sacrifice some space for that.It would be better for the gas mileage if the a/c would run on battery power alone when stationary.The brake release is set too low down, the designer must have had ape like arms.Incidentally, Mazda need to market it better, I found plenty of these available locally despite the very limited release and high demand for gas misers right now, I even got a discount on it, not that I'm complaining.Overall I would recommend it for someone who wants an environmentally kinder SUV
Pros
Green cred, roomy, average mileage display, stereo.
Cons
Dated styling, firm ride, disappointing mpg, brake release
