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 contacts overdrive button was flashing on and off and the car was jerking. The contact took car to a transmission specialist, and was told that Mazda was notorious for car jerking, and that she would have to pay to have the transmission repaired. The contact says that there is a safety recall on her transmission and would like for the dealer to pay for the work.
