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.

B3000 Duo Sport V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,000 miles

O/D light blinking. The Mazda B3000 with V6 engine is a Ford Ranger with Mazda branding. Same transmission issue as all the complaints I see here on the Ford Ranger and Explorers. 39,000 miles and the O/D light starts blinking. Diagnostics show slipping in 3rd gear. Transmission needs to be rebuilt to the tune of $2,500+. This seems to be a known and common issue with these transmissions. I wish I had known about this before I got this '"great deal on a low mileage, clean, 2002 Mazda B3000". Ford needs to be sued out of business for such crummy business ethics.
