Ford Escape Mazda Tribute Accessories

orlieorlie Posts: 12
A minor front-end collision for an unprotected Mazda Tribute looks like it'll cost a pretty penny, especially since the front grille appears to be less than rugged. I've been searching for front grille guards for my Tribute and was told, via e-mail, by Autoaccessory.com that they have a black Go Rhino front grille guard for $400 and matching tail light guards for $140, but looking at Go Rhino's site doesn't tell me if these items will fit nicely. Does anyone know of a source that has something designed for the Tribute SUV?

    Where can I find accessories for the new Ford Escape and can accessories for the tribute be used on the Escape?

    You may also want to repost your message in the Mazda Tribute discussion topic. Someone may be able to help you there. Keep in mind that the Mazda Tribute/Ford Escape are still very new, so the brushguards may not be available yet. However, you can most certainly count on them being available in the future. Even the Pontiac Aztek has an aftermarket brushguard afterall! A couple of places you may want to check out include http://www.manik.com , http://www.waag.com , and http://www.autotoys.com

    Happy hunting!

  • I did some surfing over the weekend and found this:

    I've never ordered from them, but they have some Escape-specific items such as the Gibson exhaust.

    Reply received from WAAG 02/21/01 re: above subject. 'Thought I'd share this w/ those interested:

    "We are currently working on the Mazda products. The front and rear guards, as well as, rear bumper guard are different from the Escape. The side tubes are the only cross over part and we carry those currently. I expect us to be close to completion within four weeks on everything but
    the rear light guards."

    Just a heads up for those looking to use headlight and paint protection kits (i.e. x-pel). I received word from x-pel tech support that they are working on the application design for the Tribute and that the kit(s) should be ready within a month from now.

    I just reserved a Ford Escape that the dealer already had on order. I was feeling pretty good about the deal until an after market rep came to try and sell us a warranty package on the paint finish, interior fabrics, rust protection, undercoating... He said that no, none of these things would be covered under the original warranty. If you bought at the time of purchase $850 for 5yrs...otherwise $1300. Is this BS? We've never had anyone try this in the past. Usually get undercoating thrown in (usually buy GM) Thanks...

    All those after market items are a rip off! You have a clearcoat finish (paint), manufacturers rust protection & the fabric protection can be accomplished by 2 cans of scotchgard. Oh, the undercoating is nothing but a can of black paint.
    Now an extended warranty on the parts of the car itself are another matter. This is also a negotiated item. Go to "carbuyingtips.com" for the complete low down. I don't have enough time to explain the whole process.
    Good Luck!

    I once saw a post, not sure where, for a low price Tribute accessory link from an Alabama Mazda dealer. Anyone know the link? They were all factory accessories, however, the prices were the best I've seen. Thanks in advance for any help.
  • www.mazdastuff.com is a dealer in Texas that people were referred to on one of the topic sites. Maybe that's it?
  • Over the past couple of months, I have been searching for some performance parts for my Escape. About the only thing I've found so far is a "Gibson Aluminized Swept Side Exhaust." I don't know if it's worth it or not.


    Any help anyone can give shall be much appreciated.


    By the way, try this site out: http://www.escape-parts.com/. They seem to be new, and don't offer all that much. But I suspect that's because the Escape is very new as well.

    I'm looking for a source to buy an after market bug defector & vent visors for my Escape. Can anyone tell me what is a known reliable source & how the parts fit the Escape? Also, recommend a good full set (front/back/cargo) of rubber or all season mats. Thanks, AR
