The Mazda Tribute was originally released by the Japanese automaker in 2001. Through a combined effort with Ford, the Tribute shares its platform with the popular Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner designs. The compact SUV enjoyed moderate sales in both North American and Asia, yet nearly met an early demise in 2007. Mazda was interested in taking a more aggressive approach with the design of the model, and was priming the CX-5 as the Tribute’s replacement. However, market research led the automaker to retain the Tribute nameplate for 5 more years. The design eventually gave way to the CX-5 in 2012.
The Tribute saw two design generations during its tenure under the Mazda banner. The second generation was supposed to be the first CX-5, but as stated above, these plans were put on hold. By featuring a hybrid engine on some models, Mazda was able to provide the benefits of an SUV and the economy of a compact commuter vehicle. This is likely one of the major contributing factors to the popularity of the vehicle, regardless of whether the units were moved via Mazda, Ford, or Mercury.
While on the road, a variety of issues can arise for your Tribute’s front-end. Most of these things have nothing to do with the craftsmanship of the design, but instead, poorly maintained roads or debris. Just about anything can fly up from the street and crack a headlight assembly, making these components some of the most replaced on any vehicle. But, if you’ve priced replacement assemblies, you’ve likely learned that headlights can get expensive when you don’t know where to look.
