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.

2010 Mazda 3, 5 speed. Upon shifting from 4th gear into neutral, to prepare for a stop, foot was taken off of accelerator and clutch was fully released; the engine started to rev. This is the 3rd time this has happened in 90 days. Each time has been when the vehicle was shifted into neutral from a gear, not gear specific.
