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.

I had just come out of a traffic circle and entered a straight stretch when I heard a loud crunching sound. I would estimate my speed to be between 15mph and 20 mph.the vehicle shook but I was able to move forward but had difficulty steering and could not brake. The car sputtered to a stop then I heard a hissing sound. When I got out of the vehicle I saw the right front wheel at a right angle to the fender and fluids leaking onto the pavement. The wheel was no longer attached. The tow driver reported that it took him one hour to load the vehicle onto a flatbed because the axle kept popping out when he tried to move the vehicle. Ridgeway towing transported the vehicle to ingram park Mazda, san antonio, Texas. The tow driver took photos before loading the vehicle but I do not have them. The left and right lower control arms had been replaced in July 2016 under recall 8515G.
