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.

On April 2, 2003 driving in rush hour traffic, my 2001 Mazda Tribute stalled without warning. I did not have any steering or brake control. This has happened once before approximately. 2 months ago. Both times I was going downhill. I have found others who have filed complaints about this same thing. This is a very serious and dangerous issue that Mazda needs to address and correct as soon as possible. Also the owners of these Tribute's need to be compensated for the cost of so called repairs. Mine is going to the dealership April 17, 2003 to see if they can find the problem.

Tribute

While driving through a big puddle of water, water was too high and it went into vehicle's air filter and caused hydro locking to engine, causing engine to die. Consumer feels like a sports utility vehicle should be able to go through water with out stalling out. There's a recall on Ford Explorer's engine for fan being too low to the ground. Consumer's vehicle engine was made by Ford and should be recalled also. Consumer has contacted the dealer.
