Mazda Tribute, SUV

I picked up my brand new 2004 Tribute LX (Merlot Pearl)last night. I think it's cute and I'm really excited about it. So excited, I didn't notice a "minor" problem until this morning as I almost locked myself out of the vehicle. I was warming it up before work and wanted to make sure the doors were unlocked - so I hit the unlock button on the driver side panel. Good thing I opened my window a little bit because it seems that my power lock/unlock button is reversed. When you hit the lock button it unlocks - when you hit the unlock button it locks. I'm bringing it in for service over the weekend. When I called the saleswoman told me she's "never heard of anything like that before" and neither have the guys in the service department. Has this ever happened to anyone else? I'm sure it will be a minor repair, but still, I've been a Chevy owner since I've been driving - this is my first Mazda and I'm a little nervous being that I haven't even had the vehicle for 24 hours.

Mazda just announced 0% for 60 months on 2004 Tributes in the Northeast. Check your local dealers for other regions.

picked it up last night. the car has 10k miles, pretty much everything on it and is certified. only 2wd, getting the 4x4 wasn't worth it for me given the limited used i'd get out of it. very nice vehicle for the money, nicely equipped and so far happy with the ride. anything in particular to look out for? given that it went through the certification process all the components were checked (brakes, etc.)...thanks.

It's now December 15, and I see no signs of the redesigned 2005 model - or any hint from Mazda that it's coming. Someone on this list said it was definitely coming this month. I'm thinking maybe January. It will be significantly better than the current model, that I won't waste my time shopping for a Tribute until it comes out.

It doesn't look like the exterior for the 2005 Tribute (japanese model updates) is being updated significantly. If you can wait though, you'll get a floor shifter and possible NAV and HID!

You may want to try Crutchfield (www.crutchfield.com) for directions (maybe) and replacement head units and other components (definitely). I've used them for over 20 years now and the company's great. Not the cheapest, but they know their stuff.

Are side airbags/Safety Canopy going to be standard on the 2005 Tribute S? They are not listed in any of the option packages you outlined.
