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.

Took vehicle in for tire rotation. Noticed loud humming noise in front tires after rotation. Took car back to mechanic to look at it. I was told the front tires were cupped but would pose no problem for driving. Gas mileage has gone down 2 mpg since then.

I had a mechanic rotate my tires and noticed the front tires were making alot of noise. I returned to the mechanic for an inspection and he said that the tires currently on the front that were on the rear have severe cupping probably due to a suspension problem. The mechanic recommended taking the car to the dealer although there is no recall notice for the problem. I had the mechanic rotate the tires back. The tires

Premature tire cupping of rear tires. All tires rotated according to Mazda maintenance schedule. Result in tire road noise, uneven wear, early replacement. Rear camber setting is possible issue.
