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.

engine revs high for nothing, and kicks before and after shifting gear. I have had my car for 1 year. I bought it used (never again!) with 28000km on it, it was in perfect condition. then the other day, exactly 30 days after my warranty is up my transmission fluid is empty, so we refilled it and not even 2 hrs later it is empty again with no puddle of anything under the car so chances are my fluid is running into my engine! now in june we reported a possible transmission problem and they drained the fluid and verified it and said nothing was wrong, now today conveniently, they have no record in their systems of this ever happening.... i LOVE my Mazda but never again will I purchase nor recommend buying one!
