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.

Electrical system failure vehicle, Mazda 3 manual, was returned to dealer after airbag recall maintenance was performed. Vehicle's electrical system suffered from many complaints. Service dealership stated that a loose ground wire at one of the fuse panels was the fault. Vehicle's electrical system ran as promised for months until both low-beam headlamps blew at the same time. The dealership has been notified and action will take place. I have experienced several electrical faults in the vehicle and assume many more are to come. Safety was severely compromised. No headlamps at night in a construction zone is very much a problem.
