Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

626 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I just bought a 98 626 with a little over a 100K on it in may before I bought it I took it to Mazda to have all parts and componets checked out they said the transmission was healthy and the engine was good and all parts looked great. So I bought the car the same day the check engine light came on they told me it was the gas I was using then reset my code. Since then I have had problems with the alternator the belts and now the transmission. Since may I have put over 1100 in parts and labor in this car now they say I need a new transmission which is over 2200 any suggestions on what to do.
