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.

2013 Mazda MAZDA2 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 242014


  • 20,300 miles


On the night Dec 24,2014, I had picked up my rental car(1013 Mazda 2 silver sedan) from dollar rental car at bwi airport. About 30 minutes after I drove off the lot, about 5 miles away from the pickup garage, I noticed the low tire pressure warning light was on. Before I had a chance to turn around and return the car, the front drivers side tire blew out. The tread was separated. This was obviously negligence on part of the rental car company. Whoever did the maintenance and safety check never should have allowed the vehicle to be driven off the lot. No where in the rental contract does it state that the renter is responsible for the operational & mechanical maintenance of the vehicle with the exception of refueling the vehicle. The contract also doesn't state that the renter is responsible for damages caused by negligent or improper maintenance performed by the owner/rental car company. I was fortunate I didn't have an accident. Because dollar/thrifty rental car refuses to acknowledge/reftify this problem or take responsibility for its negligence, this problem will eventually happen to another customer.
