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.

2005 Mazda MAZDA3 Owner Comments

Mazda 3 internal sensors getting stuck at mileage from 35K to 95K Mazda and giving message at in dashboard. If U reset the computer the car works fine again for a couple of miles until at message appears. When U take the Mazda to the Mazda center they tell you the whole transmission is bad, but if U take it to a transmission dealer they say is reverse solenoid or first solenoid cus of the codes. But first and reverse work fine when U reset the computer, I searched the web for at message in Mazda 3 2004-2007 hatchback or sedan and is same thing. I think is a Mazda factory error.
