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.

The first time I experienced this terrifying ordeal was in November of 2011. Since then, I have had it happen two more times. The car accelerates of up to speeds of 90 mph without warning. All 3 incidents have happened on the highway. The brakes slow it down, but do not stop it. All 3 times, I've been lucky enough to get the car to the shoulder and ride down the median, pushing the emergency break in and at one point pushing it into park. Mazda knows about this. Therefore they are liable. Mazda will tell you it's a throttle problem, they will tell you there is no wear on the brakes....well, that's because when the car does this unexpected acceleration, the brakes only go part way..almost like pushing against air. This is a serious problem with the computer and possibly throttle combined. My car is not fixed, it's also doing other stuff. Mazda wants me to keep this car and drive it. They are giants, so the little person like me does not matter to them it's the $$$$. but when someone dies, it will cost them $$$$$$$$$$. there needs to be a recall. I hope more people come forward. It could save your life or/and someone you love and other drivers on the road who are in danger of you hurting/killing them. My Mazda dealership have wonderful people who work there. They are very unhappy with Mazda not taking care of this problem. I want to make this clear, it's Mazda Corp that is aware and doing nothing and they hold the Mazda dealers hostage.
