I was yielding and went to accelerate to merge into traffic and the pedal got stuck I had to slam on brakes to get the car to slow down, when it didn't I started pumping the gas pedal and it came unstuck. Recently it has been sticking alot, when I first try to accelerate I push the pedal and it appears their is some sort of catch there I have to slam it down to get pedal to work often. . I come to a stop and when I go to push the pedal it feels hard to push. . I googled the problem and saw tons of recalls on this but when I called and gave them the VIN number they said it wasn't included. I had it washed today and when the guy washing it brought it back he mentioned to me that the gas pedal kept sticking. . He said I needed to have it checked out. I probably should have sooner but I never drove it. . . The first time it happened I thought that I just hit the pedal the wrong way but it has stuck over 10 times since then.

For the past year, the vehicle's accelerator/gas pedal has at times felt "stuck" so that the driver must press down harder than normal to accelerate. Originally the driver was under the impression that the mat was obstructing the gas pedal's ability to be depressed. Over time however, the vehicle has shown an increased difficulty in the gas pedal being depressed. Most recently, on January 23, 2014, the vehicle was idling while in traffic. When the driver attempted to press down on the accelerator, the gas pedal did not move. The driver was forced to press hard on the accelerator, and when doing so, the accelerator became "stuck" and quickly jolted the vehicle forward. The driver had to immediately press down on the brake to avoid collision with the vehicle in front. The speed at the time was less than 15 miles per hour and the driver was able to come to a stop avoiding collision. Since the incident on January 23, the vehicle's gas pedal has increasingly shown more "sticking" and has become very hard to accelerate without applying a great amount of pressure down on the pedal. This causes concern as the vehicle quickly accelerates in a jump-like manner rather than slowly accelerating to a comfortable driving speed. The 2006 Mazda Tribute is a 4 cylinder and the manufacturer has not issued a recall at this time.

Accelerator sticks and will not allow you to press the gas pedal. This happened in traffic and had to idle off to the side of the road.

Accelerator pedal gets stuck in partial acceleration position during acceleration and will not press down further past partial to full acceleration during cold mornings to accelerate faster (less than 35 degrees farenheit). Pedal typically works fine after vehicle warms up. Releasing pressure from pedal usually allows pedal to return to rest/nominal position for next attempt to press down to accelerate. Sometimes it is stuck again sometimes it works.

From a stop switching to gas pedal or accelerator the pedal sticks and hard to press and does it back to back for a few minutes. Also it can do it at random after driving for awhile and stop at a light it will stick when trying to go. Once it stops sticking I have to quickly hit the brakes to not cause over acceleration.

My gas pedal sticks when my vehicle gets cold. I purchased this vehicle about a year ago used and when the temperature dropped the gas pedal would stick. I would be in traffic and the vehicle would go nowhere when pressing the gas pedal. This has occurred many times. They said there is a recall on the 2006 but 6 cy, I have a 4 cy that the same problem is occurring. I would like to have this vehicle included in the recall as well, because apparently it is happening to the 4 cy as well.

I own a 2006 Mazda Tribute 4 cylinder. When the weather changes and it gets to be about 40 degrees or lower my gas pedal sticks! I am unable to press the pedal down. This is very scary and I believe it can cause an accident especially when you are at a traffic light you are not sure if the gas pedal gonna work. Then when you press the gas after many times of trying and it finally works you accelerate to much and can hit the car in front of you. Please check into this matter as I feel it is very important and can become a liability to Mazda.

I purchased my Mazda Tribute new in 2007. This problem started in 2010 in the winter. From time to time, the gas pedal would stick in the upright position, usually when accelerating from a full stop, but sometimes driving in traffic. The past few weeks, my son has been driving the car and has noticed the sticking pedal situation also. I had asked the dealership previously to check this out, but they said they could not get the pedal to stick when they drove it. I am taking it back in tomorrow and leaving it so they can test it after it is cold for a while. This is very dangerous. I have had problems when stopped to make a left turn, and then trying to accelerate to make the turn. So far I have been lucky, but left turns after a full stop are scary to say the least.

2008 Mazda Tribute, approx, 72,000 miles. The gas pedal sticks in cold weather. We live in the baton rouge area so it doesn't get cold often, but the last few day's we've had lows in the 20's and the gas pedal has a sticking issue. It's hard to press and when it finally does the vehicle lunges forward. We had this same issue last year when it also got abnormally cold for this area.

2006 Mazda Tribute gas pedal sticks in cold weather to the point where the car will no go anywhere. I always warm my car up however, nothing prevents this from happening and I am worried that if I stop in traffic and start I will be in a major accident.

My 2008 Mazda Tribute has about 68,500 miles. The gas pedal stuck, at intervals, all through my drive back home from my parents. It is about a 25 mile drive on the highway. The pedal became stuck once I depressed it. In order to accelerate, I had to press on the pedal with abnormal force. The car would jerk forward once the pedal became unstuck and I was able to accelerate again. This is not the first time that my 2008 Mazda Tribute does this. It did a while back when my car had about 30,000 miles. It did it two times. However, it never did it again until today, 11-14-2010. This time, however, the pedal got stuck well over 10 times. The car would decelerate while I used more and more force on the gas pedal until the pedal gave and I was able to accelerate again. I had my wife and children in the car. I did not feel safe driving the SUV. Doing research on the net and on the NHTSA this seems to be a problem which is happening to an abnormal number of 2008 Mazda Tributes throughout the USA. Why hasn't Mazda done a recall? why hasn't the NHTSA ordered a recall? this is very dangerous!.

The gas pedal is sticking, not allowing you to accelerate. My wife and I purchased this car so that our son would be safe. It has happened at stop signs and on the highway going 65-70mph. It happened around ten separate occasions, mostly in the morning. I would hate for my family to be in the car when something were to happen. We want to fix the problem but this seems to be a chronic issue with the Mazda Tribute. We love our car. Can you please help?.

My accelerator gets stuck frequently. This is dangerous and there is no way this could be my fault. It has gotten stuck on several occasions since November of 2008. On a separate note: my brake booster failed (twice) in two years.

I have had problems in the past where my gas pedal gets stuck. It's almost as if there is something lodged beneath the pedal, but the floor area is clear and free from any clutter. I have also noticed that this problem occurs once the weather changes; as soon as winter season starts is when I have this problem. I had it taken to a local mechanic shop and was told that there was a carbon build-up that needed to be cleaned out. The mechanic stated the carbon build-up was not allowing the throttle plate/flap to open and close like it should which was causing the gas pedal to stick. This can lead to a very dangerous or life-threatening car accident. This has happened for the past two years and is now starting up again. The only other complaint other than this is that the vehicle makes for a very noisy ride on the highway; I hear all outside noises such as the wind and bumps on the road.
