Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Mazda Tribute Owner Comments

problem #3

Tribute 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Outside mirror on driver side will vibrate at speeds over 50 on the highways. In bad weather or at night it is hard to tell who and what is coming up the side of the car. This is dangerous condition as it is. Mazda replaced the mirror once and it is still just as bad.

Tribute 4WD 6-cyl

The exterior driver side mirror vibrates to the point that the reflection is blurry and distorted at speeds of 50 mph or higher. The mirror has been replaced by the dealership but I still have the same problem. This condition is dangerious in bad weather and needs to be fixed. The dealership has offered no help in fixing this problem nor has support in California.

problem #1

The driver's side mirror vibrates at speeds of 30 mph and above. The vibration is excessive enough on the freeway that images reflected are completely distorted and blurry which disallows proper visualization of traffic and other vehicles. The vibration is also so bothersome that I refrain from looking in the mirror anymore which I view to be a serious safety issue. According to the dealership and car manufacturer, the problem is a characteristic of the vehicle, including all models of Mazda Tributes, that cannot be corrected. I find that to be unacceaptable!
