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.

The contact owns a 2006 Mazda Tribute. While examining the vehicle the contact noticed that the seat buckle latch was detached from the seat belt buckle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the contact was informed that the repair could not be made due to the parts being on back order. The vehicle was not repaired. The current and failure mileages were 77,000. The VIN was not available.

Tribute

  • 20,000 miles
2006 Mazda Tribute: In the last two weeks the driver side seat belt has locked into place and driver was unable to get out of the car. One of the times, driver drove to a dealership where it was totally disconnected from the floor behind the seat; so driver could get out. Mechanic said to not buckle again, but it is routine, so it happened again. Now when driving, the buzzer buzzes frequently to remind to buckle seatbelt, that cannot be unbuckled. It is buckled up, and driver is sitting on the belt. This car belongs to a 78 year old, who would not be able to get out if she had a wreck. It has happened to multiple drivers of her car. Thanks (the car belongs to my mother, and I am concerned for her safety and the safety of anyone else with this model.)
