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.

2013 Mazda CX-5 Owner Comments

problem #2

CX-5 4-cyl

  • 25,780 miles


I was traveling at 70mph on freeway with no other cars around me when sunroof imploded/exploded. Glass flew all around inside the vehicle as well as outside onto the roadway. Clear day and 60 degrees outside. Most people would just continue to drive as I did, but I could see how a person could easily lost control and cause an accident.

problem #1

CX-5 4-cyl

  • 12,250 miles
While accelerating to 70 mph on an on-ramp to I-40, I heard a very loud pop. I had my sunroof completely open (withdrawn into vehicle roof) and windows down at the time. After hearing the loud pop, I checked to see if a rock had struck my windshield, and could find no evidence of such. When I went to close my sunroof, I looked up to see that the glass had completely shattered in-place. I was able to completely close the sunroof and pull the internal cover closed, and pulled off the highway. The vehicle was immediately towed to a Mazda dealership, who is contacting Mazda to work on the source of the problem.
