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.

The seat belt just stopped locking in place, completely stopped. It won't click into place therefore I can't wear the seat belt. Which means I shouldn't even drive my car to the dealership to have them fix it!

My Mazda3 has, and has always had, tons of spiders building nests and webs. This occurs across my mirrors(inside and outside), seats, seatbelts, front speed and RPM gauges, windows, and under the hood. Usually occurs at night and I find them in the morning. Never of the same size or type, but it is very frustrating especially when they are inside the car. They are not only a danger to me, but to any passenger I may carry. I saw the mazda6 recall because of the spiders and I think the same thing is occurring here. Please check this out!

The failure mileage was 17,000 and the current mileage was 19,000. Updated 11/14/13.
