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.

2009 Mazda Tribute Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 262010


  • miles


I have a Mazda Tribute 2009 with 75000 miles. My accelerator pedal sticks and I have to step on it really hard to get the car to move, then it lurches forwarded and jerks the driver and passengers in the car. This situation is worse when the weather is cold. I am concerned that this is a real safety issue. I can not remember how long ago this problem started. I've taken to the dealership where I purchased that car and the problem was "fixed" for S short time but his since returned and it getting worse. I'm taking it back again in the morning. I have discovered with internet research that many Tribute owners have had this problem and that is was a recall issue back in 2004. My Tribute is a 2009 model. Why am I having this problem with a newer model Tribute" is there a more recent recall"
