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 2006 Mazda Mazda5. The vehicle was previously repaired under the recall associated with NHTSA campaign id number 06V463000 (latches/locks/linkages:doors:latch). Approximately two years later while the vehicle was parked the contact noticed that the rear drivers side door was stuck in a partially opened position.

Once the door opened the door handle fractured from the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the failure was not diagnosed and the vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 39,000 and the current mileage was 44,000. The VIN was unavailable.
