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.

2002 Mazda Tribute Owner Comments

problem #1

  • Automatic transmission

My 2002 Mazda Tribute developed a severe vibration when making hard left or right turns after only 3300 miles. Mazda first replaced all wheel bearings - problem still persisted. Next they re-aligned the front end - problem still there. Finally, they contacted Mazda in Japan and were told that several such problems had been reported and were resolved by replacing the entire transmission. That's what they did and it resolved the problem.
