Stalling problem almost killed me...

ReviewI was quite happy with my Tribute until this week. It stalled 2x. Once at 50mph on a 4 lane hwy in the PM rush hour. Lost all power/brakes & steering. A car-carrier truck (fully loaded w/cars) would have killed me but I was able to muscle the Tribute off the road. Stalled again next day in rush hour going around a curve at 25MPH. Had to muscle it off road into someone's yard to avoid causing an accident. It is at the dealership now. Very scary - very dangerous - someone will be killed if this stalling problem is not fixed. I cannot believe there has been no recall. Is Mazda waiting for a lawsuit?
Best FeaturesThe Tribute handles well, and is looks sharp (silver w/grey interior.) The ABS brakes work well, although the brake dust is excessive.
Worst FeaturesMazda needs to acknowledge that a stalling problem still exists with many of the '02 Tributes, and issue a recall. Also, decrease the amt of brake dust, and road noise.
