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

MAZDA3 4-cyl

  • 5,000 miles


I was in a rear end collision with the Mazda, and was hit at 50mph speed by a drunk driver while stopped at a traffic light. The driver had fallen asleep at the wheel, so did not brake prior to the collision. During the collision, the air bags did not deploy, nor did the seat belt catch me, and I hit the steering wheel with full strength, causing damage to the right side of my face where I had hit with eye damage, and soft tissue damage all over the face with nerve numbness on the whole left side. Of concern is why none of the safety features of a 2 month old vehicle did not deploy during a high impact crash.
