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.

problem #2

I have taken my Mazda 3 to be checked out 2 times due to the engine light coming on. Both times I was told it was the gas cap. I am told this has been a recall for other Mazda vehicle but not mine. I have owned my vehicle for 4 years and it has happened 2 times. Can someone please look into this to have this problem corrected.

The contact owns a 2009 Mazda Mazda3. The contact stated that spiders were all over the vehicle. The contact did research and found that Mazda recalled the 2009 mazda6 under NHTSA campaign id number: 11V134000 (fuel system: Gasoline: Storage tank assembly) which stated that a certain type of spider could weave a web inside the fuel canister. The contact stated that the same spider was in their vehicle. The manufacturer was contacted and stated that the 2009 Mazda was not included in the recall and offered no further assistance. The failure mileage was unknown, but the current mileage was 30,000.
