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

Tribute 4-cyl

While parked at a gas station the front door passenger power window slammed opened/down during normal door closure. Window regulator assembly was removed and found defective. Internal cable windings were kinked and caused plastic within power window motor to break allowing cable/window to move freely and fall to open/down position. Safety of vehicle is jeopardized...if this happened at speed it could certainly create a startling event that could cause a driver to lose control of the vehicle because of the sudden unexpected distraction by sudden rush of wind noise and environmental elements.
