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.

I am about 60 years old and never seen such a stupid feature in a car before,the car automatically locks all doors while it is in motionless and running, in California were the temperature exceeds 100 degrees F.the A/C kept on, the windows rolled up, and for some reason you might stop to get something or to talk to someone out side the car , a baby or toddler is riding with you, and all the sudden, you are shocked to see all doors are locked, you panic, baby starts crying and you are about to break the glass to open the door...

whoever invented this feature is definitely out of his mind, while all other cars re-open the doors if you accidentally leave the car in the ignition, this stupid Mazda 626 2000 locks the door while its stopped but running....

I would like to know how to disable this stupid feature (unlock) the doors in any state ; stopping or in motion..

I am looking for immediate, sensible, logical reply NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW...
