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

Jan 232014

CX-5 4-cyl

  • 18,540 miles


Cx-5 vehicle experienced a dangerous loss of engine/transmission power shortly after accelerating from a full stop at a stoplight. Several console warning lights illuminated including at, TPMS, cel, & tcs. Another accelerating vehicle directly behind Cx-5 narrowly avoided rear ending the Cx-5. Cx-5 slowed down to low gears/rpms and came to a full stop. Driver turned off the vehicle, and then re-started it. Only warning light remained illuminated was the cel. Vehicle engine/transmission would not shift past low speed gears. Vehicle was towed to Mazda dealership where cel codes indicated shift malfunction and shift time errors. Mazda authorized repair procedure included replacing valve body and resetting adaptive driving system computer.
