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 contact owns a 2012 Mazda CX9. The contact stated that the headlights would provide more than 15 feet of illumination unless the highbeams were turned on. The contact had taken the vehicle to the dealer twice and the contact was told there was nothing wrong with the headlights. The VIN was not available. The failure mileage was 10 and the current mileage was 8,100.

Both my tail lights form condensation. I contacted both the dealer and the corporation several times. The corporation maintains this is a normal occurrence that comes and goes depending on the weather conditions. Consequently they don't consider this a warranty issue, as a result they won't do anything to remedy the problem. The service manager from the dealership informed me that they use to replace the faulty unit until Mazda refused to reimburse them. Their excuse seems to be absurd considering the unit should be sealed.
