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.

2008 Mazda Tribute Owner Comments

problem #1

2008 Mazda Tribute always maintained good, first when driving on wet bridges SUV tends to glide. This happens the time a bridge is wet. Car is no longer under warranty and im scared they might overcharge me. $100.0 just to check it. Another problem is the front bearings in the front had to be replaced, and brakes make a swushing noise ever time I apply the brakes. Ignition key has to be push while turning it to start car. Took it to my mechanic and he says that the ignition switch is bad. This car is laced with problems please advise Ford to recall this SUV. It will kill people, you don't want it to be raining and you slam your brakes and your car slides and runs into people. Please address this with Ford urgently. Thank you btw when your braking the seat kind of feels like its going forward and increasing speed kind of goes back.
