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.

When the weather gets cool (sub 50F) the gas pedal will stick. When the gas pedal is fully depressed and you go to push it down it sticks. When this sticking finally lets go the vehicle jumps forward. The V6 version of this SUV has a recall on the pedal but I own the V4.

Tribute 4-cyl

  • 65,000 miles
My gas peddle drops and I cannot accelerate. This has happened over 10 times when I'm driving. I thought that I possibly slid the carpet to knock the gas pedal off, but I have removed my carpet and it happened twice since then. I've been in intersections and my gas pedal just drops to the floor. This could be very serious if I happened to have been passing someone. In these situations, after several attempts pulling it back up, I did manage to get the peddle to work again. But I'm afraid I won't always be so lucky. I brought my car in to a Mazda dealer and they said they have a bulletin that requires a cable change and a clip at the cost of approx. $140. This started happening at approx. 65000 miles, and I now have 80K miles.
