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.

2001 Mazda 626 Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 272006

626 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 104,000 miles


My 2001 Mazda 626 has had two transmissions installed and now installing the third one @104000 miles first time the overdrive light flashed and would not shift into the proper gear at 53000 miles we had to fight with Mazda North America for several weeks to take care of it. Also wheeler Mazda in yuba city did not help or care witch the car was purchased at new. I have had the car serviced at the dealer for all recommended service. Now the second one just went out @ 104000 miles and the Mazda rep for Mazda North America will not help at all. The cost to repair this one IS2,900 dollars. I have 3 children and one on the way. This is not what I expect from a new car that has been well taken care of. The axles went out @ 70000 miles the stereo went out 2 times in the first month. The 2nd transmission started squeaking for about 10 minutes then the transmission just quit. Thanks.
