Summary of Complaint

OWNED MY TRIBUTE FOR A YEAR BEFORE THE PROBLEMS BEGAN. ON 3/15/02 I TOOK IT IN BECAUSE THE LOW COOLANT LIGHT KEPT COMING ON. THE DEALERSHIP COULDN'T FIND A PROBLEM, BUT I HAD THEM DO A 30K MILE SERVICE AND CHECK EVERYTHING FROM FRONT TO BACK. HAD A RENTAL FOR TWO DAYS. ON 6/10/02 I TOOK IT IN BECAUSE IT SUDDENLY STARTED STALLING DEAD AT STOPS AND YIELDS. I ALMOST WRECKED DUE TO THIS. CAUSE: INTERNAL FAILURE. THE DEALERSHIP REPLACED THE CONTROL UNIT, IDLE AIR VALVE, COOLANT FAN RELAY. I HAD A RENTAL FOR THREE DAYS. ON 8/5/02 IT HAD TO BE TOWED BECAUSE THE IGNITION SWITCH COMPLETELY LOCKED UP AND WOULDN'T TURN. DEALERSHIP PUT IN A NEW IGNITION SWITCH AND CYLINDER. MY KEYS HAD TO BE REPROGRAMMED. I HAD A RENTAL FOR TWO DAYS. ON 11/13/02 I TOOK IT IN BECAUSE THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT KEPT COMING ON AND THE ENGINE DID NOT IDLE SMOOTHLY. THE DEALERSHIP COULD NOT DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM AND I USED THEIR RENTAL FOR THREE DAYS. ON 12/24/02 THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME BACK, THE ENGINE IDLED ROUGH AND THE ENTIRE VEHICLE WAS VISIBLY SHAKING. THE DEALERSHIP TOLD ME THAT ONE OF THE SIX COILS WAS BAD AND NEEDS TO BE REPLACED OR ONE WRONG SPARK COULD RUIN THE WHOLE ENGINE. LOOKS LIKE I HAVE THE RENTAL FOR AT LEAST A WEEK. IT JUST WENT OVER 50K MILES, SO MY BASIC WARRANTY IS UP, HOWEVER THE EMISIONS CONROL SYSTEM (ENGINE) IS WARRANTED UNTIL 80K MILES. IT SEEMS A SHAME THAT MAZDA WOULD PUT OUT SUCH POOR QUALITY AND PROBLEMATIC VEHICLES TO THEIR LOYAL CUSTOMERS. MAYBE THEY SHOULD ADD THAT TO THEIR "ZOOM, ZOOM" COMMERCIALS.

Summary of Complaint

I BOUGHT THIS CAR FROM A GUY IN JULY OF THIS YEAR AND HE SAID "THE GAS PEDAL GETS STUCK SOMETIMES BUT IF YOU JUST PUMP THE PEDAL SEVERAL TIMES IT SHOULD STOP". WELL THE GAS PEDAL DOESN'T GET STUCK SOMETIMES, IT GETS STUCK ALL THE TIME. IT GETS STUCK AND EITHER CAUSES THE CAR NOT TO START OR IT CAUSES THE ENGINE TO REV. WHEN I AM DRIVING IT'LL GET STUCK AND ACCELERATE THE CAR WHEN I'M NOT EVEN PRESSING THE GAS PEDAL AND SOMETIMES IT CAUSES THE BRAKES TO NOT WORK EITHER. THE ONLY REASON I HAVEN'T GOTTEN IN AN ACCIDENT YET IS BECAUSE IT IS A STICK SHIFT AND I'M ABLE TO PULL IT OUT OF GEAR BUT IT STILL CAUSES THE ENGINE TO REV AND ISN'T SAFE AT ALL. A FEW WEEKS AGO I WAS DOING SOME RESEARCH AND FOUND OUT THAT THERE IS A SPEED/THROTTLE CABLE RECALL ON 2001-2005 MAZDA TRIBUTES BECAUSE OF THE EXACT ISSUES DESCRIBED ABOVE BUT WHEN I SEARCHED MY VIN NUMBER ON THE RECALL LIST/CALLED THE DEALERSHIP THEY SAID MY CAR ISN'T ON IT AND I 100% BELIEVE IT SHOULD BE BECAUSE IT MATCHES THE EXACT SAME YEAR/MAKE/MODEL AND ISSUE ON THE RECALL. I DON'T WANT TO PAY TO GET THIS FIXED BECAUSE IT'S NOT MY FAULT THIS WAS IMPROPERLY MANUFACTURED (AND I CAN'T AFFORD IT) BUT I ALSO DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH LONGER THE CAR WILL RUN LIKE THIS BEFORE THE ENGINE IS BLOWN OR I GET IN A CAR ACCIDENT. IS THERE ANY WAY MY CAR CAN BE ADDED TO THEIR RECALL LIST? *TR

Summary of Complaint

MAZDA RECALL 7514D, CROSS BRACE KIT, FAILED CAUSING CATASTROPHIC LOSS OF STEERING. THE CROSS BRACE ATTACHMENT AT THE FRAME FAILED. CROSS BRACE INTACT, BUT THE FRAME ATTACHMENT WAS SEVERELY CORRODED CAUSING FRAME FAILURE AND CROSS BRACE SEPARATION FROM THE FRAME. THE RECALL WAS COMPLETED 8/21/14.

THE VEHICLE WAS TRAVELLING ON A CITY STREET AT APPROXIMATELY 10-15 MPH, HAVING JUST STARTED FROM A STOP AND IN A RIGHT HAD TURN, AT THE TIME OF THE INCIDENT SHE DID NOT RECOGNIZE THE SERIOUSNESS OF THE EVENT AND CONTINUED DRIVING SINCE THE VEHICLE MOMENTARILY CORRECTED THE STEERING FAILURE.

THE DRIVER WAS BARELY ABLE TO GET THE VEHICLE SAFELY STOPPED THROUGH FULL CROSS STEERING AND WAS VERY SHAKEN BY THIS EVENT, SINCE 2 SMALL CHILDREN WERE PASSENGERS DURING THIS SERIOUS EVENT.

Summary of Complaint

2001 MAZDA TRIBUTE. CONSUMER WRITES IN REGARDS TO THE VEHICLE SUBFRAME CORROSION RECALL NOTICE. *SMD THE CONSUMER RECEIVED A RECALL NOTICE IN EARLY JUNE. HOWEVER, SHE HAD ALREADY PAID FOR THE REPAIRS. SO, SHE SUBMITTED A REQUEST FOR REIMBURSEMENT, ALONG WITH A SYNOPSIS OF THE TROUBLE SHE EXPERIENCED. THE CONSUMER RECEIVED A LETTER OF DENIAL FROM MAZDA, STATING THE PARTS THAT WERE REPLACED OR SERVICE COMPLETED, WERE NOT CONSIDERED COVERED ITEMS UNDER THE SUBFRAME CORROSION RECALL. ON DECEMBER 26, 2012 WHILE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY, THE CONSUMER NOTICED A DECREASED CONTROL OVER THE STEERING. THE VEHICLE FISH-TAILED MULTIPLE TIMES IN LIGHT SNOW, WHICH HAD NEVER OCCURRED BEFORE. DUE TO HER STEERING DIFFICULTIES, SHE DROVE AT 30 MPH, YET STILL SPUN OUT FOR NO APPARENT REASON. NO ONE WAS INJURED AND SHE ONLY HIT A MEDIAN WHICH CAUSED DAMAGE TO THE REAR PASSENGER SIDE TAIL LIGHT AND BODY DAMAGE. AT THE TIME, SHE ATTRIBUTED THE INCIDENT TO WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS. HOWEVER, IT MADE FAR MORE SENSE IN THE CONTEXT OF THE RECALL. IN JANUARY 2013, SHE CONTINUED TO EXPERIENCE STEERING PROBLEMS. SHE ATTEMPTED TO GET AN ALIGNMENT, BUT RAN INTO PROBLEMS DUE TO THE SUBFRAME; WHICH WAS THE FIRST TIME, SHE HEARD OF TROUBLE WITH THE SUBFRAME. ACCORDING TO INVOICE, THE CASTER WAS NOT ADJUSTABLE WITHOUT THE SUBFRAME ADJUSTMENT AND POSSIBLY MORE. IT WAS 0.3 DEGREES FROM ACCEPTABLE RANGE, MAY DEMONSTRATE A SLIGHT LEAD OR PULL. THE CONSUMER EXPERIENCED PROBLEMS FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS. THE BALL JOINT AND RIGHT CONTROL ARM WERE REPLACED. THE MECHANIC INFORMED THE CONSUMER THE CONTROL ARM LOOKED AS IF IT WAS READY TO BREAK OFF, DUE TO CORROSION. ALSO, THE LEFT FRONT CONTROL ARM, ALONG WITH THE STRUTS, ROTORS AND BRAKE HOSES, WERE ALL REPLACED. *JB

Summary of Complaint

I HAVE JUST REPLACED THE MASTER CYLINDER AND BRAKE BOOSTER ON THIS VEHICLE FOR THE THIRD TIME. THIS TIME, BRAKE FLUID ACTUALLY LEAKED INTO A PUDDLE UNDER THE CAR. THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE CARDONE AFTERMARKET MASTER CYLINDER, BUT THE ORIGINAL FAILED, THEN TWO OTHERS, NOT CARDONE. MY VEHICLE DOES NOT HAVE ABS BRAKES AND IS NOT COVERED UNDER THE CURRENT RECALL, BUT NONETHELESS, THERE MUST BE A STRUCTURAL DEFECT WITH THE VEHICLE THAT CAUSES THE LEAK. *TR
