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.

"takata recall" my car has been under recall since May 2016. By manufactors direction, I should not use the car because of danger to passingers. We are a 2 person family, and this is our only Transport. Five (5) months has put a serious strain on us. I believe this defect should have been solved in a more timely manner.

Takata recall I received a letter in July, 2016 informing me of the recall and asking me to wait until further notice from Mazda. They suggested I not have anyone ride in the passenger seat until repaired. I called Mazda dealer 10-18-16 and still do not have parts. That suggestion is not tenable and what about the danger to the driver? I feel this is an unreasonable amount of time to wait for this recall to be taken care of and repaired. Thank you.

We received the July 2016 recall notice from Mazda for our vehicle. It states: "until this repair is performed, do not allow passengers to ride in the front passenger seat." In reviewing the recall information on your website, it says that the propellant (ammonium nitrate) can become unstable and cause a possible rupture. How can this occur only on the passenger side and not also the driver side of the same vehicle" shouldn't the car be parked and not driven until the repair is complete"
