a very under rated suv

i paid £165 for my tribute due to a short mot , did a full service on it all fluids and oils and filters now runs a treat is used for a 2nd vehicle , for holidays as i need somthing with room in back to have my hounds in, to drive it is good fun with the power of the v6 not that good on petrol but comfy and good road manners as long you do not push it as it will bite back , being not a true 4x4 a lot of disco drivers snear at the tribute but soon learn it can cope with most road conditions not realy much good for full of road but ok for green laneing , the auto is not the best but keep the atf clean it works fine the v6 has plenty of power need to over take just kick it down and go i have fitted a k&n air filter and chiped it via the obd socket , if you want a cheap suv go for a tribute v6 i have had suv's of all sorts but for the money you can't beat it. the only thing bad thing to look for on the body is the rear wheel arches as the rear door cover them , and check the auto box atf if dirty walk away , parts are cheap and plentiful new and s/h it is cheap to run. thats about it i have done over 8000mls with no probs and it just eats up motorways just get up to speed hit cruse and relax...
