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.

When driving to and from somewhere when I come to a stop sign or a stop light my car will shake (vibrate) alot and sometimes almost die so I have to push on the gas a little or put the car in park. Also another issue I have is my car wont always turn over. I have replaced many piecxes and have taken it to Mazda dealer ships and noone can seem to find the exact problem. They say it is an intermiten problem. This can be very dangerous especially sense I have two kids that are always in the car with me.
