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.

The contact owns a 1998 Mazda 626. The contact stated that while driving approximately 40 to 60 mph, the vehicle would vibrate. In addition, when depressing the accelerator pedal, there was a hesitation in the vehicle's response. The contact was concerned that there was a defect in the fuel system and that the amount of fuel flowing to the engine was minimal. The contact also stated that NHTSA campaign id number 97V228000 (fuel system, gasoline: Fuel injection system) was directly related to the failure. The contact was unable to confirm if his VIN was a part of the recall or if the recall repair had been performed by the previous owner. The vehicle had not been taken to the dealer. The approximate failure mileage was 182,035 and the current mileage was 186,000.
