If you're on the prowl for an affordable compact SUV that doesn't compromise on safety, consider the 2009 Mazda Tribute S. We're currently offering this well-equipped and highly lauded vehicle on our lot for less than $15,000. The sticklers at both the NHTSA and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety put the Tribute through the crash test gauntlet. The first awarded it perfect 5-star ratings in front, side barrier, and other categories. The latter named the compact SUV a Top Safety Pick. Much of the Mazda's outstanding scores are owed to its long list of security features, such as anti-lock brakes, roll stability control, and a tire pressure monitoring system. The Tribute further boasts half a dozen airbags (including side curtain) and 3-point seat belts. Get in touch with the team at Skaha Ford in Penticton, BC to schedule a test drive. But act fast, this car won't be here long.
