    Summary: The Timken Company (Timken) is recalling certain aftermarket front wheel bearings, part number 510072, sold from January 22, 2015, to May 21, 2015, to be used as service parts on 2001-2012 Ford Escape, 2001-2011 Mazda Tribute, and 2005-2011 Mercury Mariner vehicles.

  2. 2006 Mazda Tribute ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING, VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL:CABLES NHTSA Campaign #12V357000

    • Date Announced: JULY 27, 2012
    • Vehicles Affected: 217,500

    Summary: Mazda is recalling certain model year 2001 through 2006, and 2008, Tribute vehicles equipped with 3.0L V6 engines and speed control. Inadequate clearance between the engine cover and the speed control cable connector could result in a stuck throttle when the accelerator pedal is fully or almost-fully depressed. This risk exists regardless of whether or not speed control (cruise control) is used.

    Consequence: A stuck throttle may result in very high vehicle speeds and make it difficult to stop or slow the vehicle, which could cause a crash, serious injury or death.

    Actions: Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will repair the vehicles by increasing the engine cover clearance, free of charge. Remedy parts are now available. The safety recall began on September 13, 2012. Owners may contact Mazda Customer Assistance Center at 1-800-222-5500, option #6.

  3. 2006 Mazda Tribute VISIBILITY:WINDSHIELD WIPER/WASHER:MOTOR NHTSA Campaign #05V525000

    • Date Announced: NOVEMBER 17, 2005
    • Vehicles Affected: 3,982

    Summary: On certain trucks and sport utility vehicles, the windshield wiper motor may have been produced without grease applied to the output shaft gear.

    Consequence: After a period of continuous use on the high speed setting, lack of grease on the output shaft gear may cause the gear teeth to distort or fracture during operation resulting in the loss of wiper function. Inoperative wipers under inclement weather conditions could cause a crash due to impaired visibility.

    Actions: Dealers will inspect the wiper motor for the presence of grease and grease the wiper motor gears if necessary. The recall began on November 28, 2005. Owners may contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #05V525000 »
