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.

Automatic transmission burnt out! car was towed to workshop and remanufactured transmission needed to be put in cost $3100. Was little over 3 years from purchase date, therefore was not covered under warranty. The problems did not stop there, in about 50 days, "check engine" light came on... took it to the same place who worked on the transmission. Technician reported new problem unrelated to automatic transmission, new service cost $500. The car cost me big $$$ in maintainance.... don't know if this is the end of the problems... Mazda 626 owners watch out!
