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.

2010 Mazda Tribute Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 202012


  • 48,100 miles


Incident occurred on 10/20/2012 at 7:00 pm in the fred meyer parking lot in klamath falls, Oregon. Temperature out 40 degrees. Tailgate window shattered in parking lot on my 2010 Mazda Tribute. I came out of fred meyer. I opened the tailgate to load a few items. I shut the tailgate and the back window exploded. Shattered glass flew over 10 feet in all directions, landed on my feet, fell into the back of the vehicle. Glass pieces were tiny shards that were very sharp. I had numerous cuts on my hands trying to pick up the large pieces. I had two dogs in the back of the vehicle that the glass had come in on them and they were standing on the pieces that covered the entire back interior.
