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.

2011 Mazda Tribute Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 39,000 miles


Driving on highway, engine just failed to accelerate suddenly and had to coast over to the breakdown lane. Engine did not turn completely off as it continued to hesitate and rpms fluctuated between 500-1000 but gas pedal would not accelerate car. Immediately put hazard lights on so cars behind me would know thar I was not at constant speed anymore.

The contact owns a 2011 Mazda Tribute. The contact stated that when depressing the brakes, he would haphazardly depress the accelerator pedal simultaneously. The contact had concerns with the distance between the two pedals and stated that they were entirely too close together. The vehicle was not inspected or repaired and the manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The current mileage was 4,500. The failure mileage was 5.
