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

Jul 282004

Tribute 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 113,000 miles


I have had the truck for 3 years and 113,000 miles highway miles, no off-roading. The front wheel bearings went out and were replaced under warranty at 43000 miles. The front wheel bearings are out again along with the stabilizer link and ti-rods. The wheels felt like they we about to fall off if you happened to hit a bump in the road. I just purchased a new set of tires a month ago and they are now possibly ruined due to the wheel bearing failure. I have had two cars with over 200K miles and never replaced the wheel bearings. It is currently at the Mazda dealer with an $800 repair bill.
