Mazda will also recall about 217,000 Tribute SUVs to fix a problem that can cause the gas pedals to stick. It’s the same problem that Ford had since the Tribute and Escape are essentially the same vehicle. The Mazdas are from model years 2001 through 2008 and are powered by 3-liter V-6 engines. The cruise control cable can get snagged on the engine cover and cause the accelerator to stick if the driver has pushed the gas pedal close to the floor. Dealers will install fasteners to create more space between the cables and the cover. Parts are expected to arrive about the middle of the month. Mazda says if customers have concerns about their Tributes before that, dealers will disconnect the cruise control until the parts arrive.
