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.

2006 Mazda MAZDA5 Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 152006

MAZDA5 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 5,500 miles


I am the owner of a Mazda5- manual transmission. I parked my car in my driveway and engaged the brake. My daughter re-entered the car about 1 hour later, as she got in the car and sat down she felt it move and hopped out. The car rolled down our driveway hit a tree with the door still open and crashed into another car. I am not sure if the brake was completely engaged or it just failed. I have photos of the accident. The brake is engaged in the photo. The entire right side of the car will have to be replaced. The right side and door were mangled by the tree. The back bumper was damaged by inpact to a parked car in my neighbors yard.
