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 contact owns a 2015 Mazda 3. while the vehicle was at the dealer for routine maintenance, the technician noticed fuel leaking from the vehicle. The technician stated that the vehicle was included in NHTSA campaign number: 15V621000 (fuel system, gasoline) however, the part to do the recall repair was unavailable. The contact was informed that the vehicle was unsafe to drive and would be kept until the recall remedy could be performed.

The day was hot and I was in stop and go traffic with the ac set to 72 degrees in my 2015 Mazda 3 with just 21K miles on it. My car unexpectedly stalled and the check engine and charging system/battery lights came on briefly in the dash. I had to shift into park and push the button to restart my vehicle. The car's ECU/PCM did not set any codes and the problem has not occurred again since that hot day. This is a danger because the sudden loss of power could result in a rear end collision luckily I was in stop and go traffic. Dealer and Mazda have been slow to investigate this thoroughly. Feels like they just want to send me on my way without doing a thorough investigation of this issue.
