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 have been informed that the rotors on my 2007 Mazda 5 need to be turned because they overheat and cause warping. It is not reasonable that rotors must be turned at about 17000 miles, I have seen on the web the numerous complaints about similar situation. They state that the rotors are a normal wear item and thus not covered. I have had many vehicles throughout my life and this quality and life of these rotors are unacceptable, vehicles average well over 30,000 miles before any type of maintenance must be performed.

The contact owns a 2007 Mazda5. While driving between 35-40 mph, the brakes failed. The contact maneuvered the vehicle to the right and left in order to slow down. The vehicle stopped and the contact exited. She noticed smoke and flames underneath the vehicle. The fire department extinguished the flames. After the investigation, the fire department could not determine the cause of the failure. The current and failure mileages were 44,000.
