Dangerous Burning Mazda Tribute Vehicles Recalled

There's a Mazda in that garage.
Watch out - if you own one of the over-52,000 Mazda Tribute vehicles built in model year 2001 and 2002, you could have a vehicle that bursts into fire unexpectedly. Finally federal safety investigations have resulted in a recall of the dangerous vehicles.

Reports of fires and houses burning down have been reported for years, including homes burned to the ground and injuries. It's been a "quiet" disaster for Mazda owners.

Do you own one of these dangerous lemon Mazda vehicles?
