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.

I was dropping my children off to daycare turning into the parking lot and going over a bump when I heard a loud "pop" toward the front of the car - the car completely stopped dead - I got out to find the front right tire was cocked hard left and was off its control arm - some fluid was also leaking out of the axle area. This happened the Monday morning after I received the recall notice from Mazda this past weekend! I had the form in the car to call for service this week. I have called the service center but they have said they will not be able to look at the car until Thursday - now I will have towing and rental expenses connected with this defect. Fortunately no one in the car was hurt or that it didn't fail on the highway!

The vehicle started to have problems with the car shaking around 50mph. So we planned to have it looked at since we heard that this particular model has some known issues that may become severe. During the drive to the car shop (literally 1 mile from home) the axle/bearing or front suspension separated from the car!!! the front left wheel and joints separated from the car; the wheel looks like it was breaking off! we were driving around 15mph! no one was hurt and thank goodness it was around 11am so there was no traffic around to make things worse. The car had to be towed to the car shop which was only feet away from the scene, which was an added charge! *photos of incident are also available

I have just learned about issues with the Mazda CX9 and wheels falling off and I realized that is exactly what happened to me. I always took care of my cx 9 because I drive a lot for work and depend on my car very much, so when issues with the steering started I took it to sears for a wheel alignment since I had just replaced a new set of tires a couple of months before, it seemed ok after the alignment until again the small skip of the steering started every time I turn the wheel, I did think much of it until it started increasing. Every time I turned the wheel the skip was there, I decided to call my mechanic who always did all the car service and maintenance and he said to bring it in over the weekend to take a look, before I had the chance to bring it to him, as I was making a right turn the wheel came right off the transfer case and the arms, good thing I was just making a right turn, minutes before I was on the highway and I don't even want to think about what could have happened... I thought it had been just a freak accident and I was happy to be alive. I had the mechanic come and pick up the car from the street and after surveying the damages he had to replace both upper and lower arms on both sides and then he noticed that the transfer case had been damaged when the axel pulled away, so now we needed a new transfer case and it is not an easy job. Now that it is all done I found that it has happened many times, this is not right and makes me angry to know that the owners were not informed right away, I could have had my children in the car..
