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.

I was looking in nadaguides if found a report of a problem with damping noise in front suspension and I found a recall campaign 05V412000, and I will like to know if this car was ispected because I bought the car three months ago in a dealer in puerto rico. Other information I will like to know is if the Mazda 5 presents problems with the front suspension, shocks absorber or other parts related. My anticipated thanks for your help.

1. event leading up to failure: Engine light on. Brought in to Mazda 5 for service. Engine mount appears to have broken. Believe weight of engine on temperature sensor and vibration related to engine mount resulted in breakage of temperature sensor. 2. the failure, how often it occurs, its consequences engine mounts in 2006 Mazda 5 are made of plastic and rubber engine mount that has a significantly high failure rate. See repairpal.com/defective-engine-mount-may-cause-excessive-vibrationnoise-460 for summary and www.finishlineperformance.com/pdf/Mazda5/bulletin/03-001-07-1823.pdf for technical service bulletin. From research. Defective engine mounts can cause significantly expensive damage to engine making it a safety hazard as it will impact drivability of vehicle. Mazda 5 refuses to handle such issues as they are out of warranty despite they are a design flaw. 3. what was done to correct the failure out of pocket repairs at sutherlin Mazda mall of Georgia inclusive of service and parts to replace number 3 engine mount and temperature sensor additional notes: 2006 Mazda 5 has undergone two prior recalls also safety related. Engine mount failure and additional common problems with vehicle model can be found at repairpal.com/cars/Mazda/5. believe this shows a pattern of vehicle design negligence. Please inquire if Mazda has reported issue to NHTSA regarding defective engine mounts and failure rates of these mounts associated with Mazda technical service bulletin (see previous pdf url).
