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.

About one month after my purchase of my brand new Mazda3, I checked the tire pressures. All 4 tyres were 50 psi!! 18 psi more than the recommended tire pressure and 6 psi more than maximum allowable pressure. I could not believe that it might be possible, I made sure that the device was measuring accurately and also ask somebody else to check the tire pressure. Yes all four tires were 50 psi. I drove that vehicle for about 3000 miles mostly on highway with those over inflated tires!!! I am lucky to be alive. Either the dealer (cook Mazda in Michigan) or in some other Mazda facility, the tires were overinflated probably because of an uncalibrated tool. I believe my car is not the only Mazda car with overinflated tires in traffic.
