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.

MAZDA3 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 30,000 miles


2005 Mazda 3 with 30K miles. About a month ago the car started hesitating while driving and then stalling when stopped. The check engine light came on. Brought it to the dealer and they indicated it was the oxygen sensor, which they replaced later in the week. It's been three days now and I'm experiencing the same problem. Check engine light came on again. I'll give dealer one more chance to diagnose and fix the problem or I'll try someone else.
