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.

2012 Mazda CX-7 Owner Comments

problem #1

Three door latch screws on the driver's front door came completely out and were missing when I discovered the problem. The door would not close tightly and wind noise could be heard when driving. There was a recall on Mazda 6 vehicles with exactly this same problem. Also, the screws on the other 3 doors were not tight and I had to tighten them. The problem was discovered while the CX7 was parked in the driveway.
