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.

There have been a multitude of problems on the vehicle (two sets of brakes, tierod, electrical overhaul vacuum hoses...) the major issue has been oil leaking. This past summer (2011) there was an oil leak. The dealer had the car for several days before diagnosing that it was the rear main seal. The seal was replaced (car was at dealer for nearly two weeks.) this fall (2011) oil was still leaking. After several days the dealer contacted Mazda corporate and they suggested replacing the transmission, claiming it was not uncommon. The dealer replaced the transmission. Winter/spring 2012 oil still leaking, car is currently at the dealer - claiming it is the rear main seal. Again" wouldn't that have been replaced with the new transmission"
