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 #1

Jan 152003

Tribute 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles


I have had to have my brakes and rotors replaced twice since I've owned this car. The first time was at about 20,000 miles and the last time was at about 40,000 miles. Both times it was under warranty, however now this vechicle is out of warranty and I fear that this is going to be a reoccuring problem. Not to mention that in between the times the brakes were replaced the vechicle was taken to the dealer numerous times for brake squels when stopping. Even after the rotor and brakes were replaced, this noise it still present. I plan on selling this car at this point and cutting my losses, however now today a recall has come out for a stalling problem. Once this is fixed this car will be sold to anyone willing to buy this bag of bolts.
