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.

Handbrake on Mazda 5 failed to engage when stopped, the handbrake pulled up but with no tension whatsoever, a child could have lifted it. I had pulled up to a carpark and put the gear to neutral, but the handbrake would not engage when I lifted it, it was in cold conditions, ( cold for rep of ireland ) -4 'C, I use this car to ferry my children around, through one search I found this site which has a lot of complaints about the Mazda 5 handbrake please please do something!
