I tried to buy an 08 mazda tribute. Had signed the papers,was rolling off the lot when I realized the dealer only game me one key. I parked, ran back inside, and when I came back to leave, the car would not start! I could hear the clicking sound from the alternator. So I wouldn't walk out the dealership without a car, because I refused to take that one, the dealer offered me an 09 for the same price. Guess what, the 09 had the same problem! The dealer literally tore up the contract and gave me my down payment back.. I am soooo happy that deal fell through because I ended up getting and 08 Kia Sorento, which is a roomier, much owerful, and more COMFORTABLE drive. And it looks alot better than the Tribute! The i sports on the mazda doesn't have the lumbar support, I had got a higher trim on the 08, which did have the lumbar support, but the Kia Sorento is a muuuuuuuch better drive for less money! People should be aware of those bad alternators on these trucks. The Kia Sorento was a much better buy. Thank God for intervening!
