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. Notes: So far Mazda seems to have fixed the serious engine & A/C defects that plagued the 2007-2010 CX-7s. We're giving it a tentative "Good" rating for now.

"takata recall" issued May 25, 2016 and we were just notified August 12, 2016. Remedy not yet available and Mazda suggest the vehicle should not be driven. We have not had an accident yet, but if we do, how can we not drive a car that we own"we have to work to pay bills. How many months, and/or deaths, until a remedy is available"
