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

I have a 2001 Mazda 626. The over drive light began to flash, within 15 minutes I was at the dealer. I need a new transmission. My car is not showing any signs of failure. The light keeps flashing. I put an external transmission radiator and the light has not turned on. I have to replace my brakes 4 times in six months. They say it is my driving. How can this be? once it took them a week to put brake pads. That Monday they said it needed rotors and did not have the parts. That Friday I picked up my car and they said it did not need rotors after all!!! they rented me a car, 2 months later my credit card was charged for the weeks rental. Besides this the national city mile of cars wescott Mazda-Kia dealer are sexist and discriminate against women. The customer service guy (tom) called me an ass and never apologized even after I told his boss.
