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.

problem #4

At low speed driving a clunking noise could be felt in the steering. On 11-20-2015 the local Mazda dealer diagnosis showed a failure in the electrical power steering unit and it had to be replaced at considerable expense. Dealer advised that no tsb was issued and since the warranty had expired it was my responsibility to pay for the repair. It seems to me that a failure in the electrical power assist unit is a serious, if not dangerous, condition that should cause the NHTSA to order a recall of the 2011 Mazda 2 to make sure the vehicles are road worthy and safe.
