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.

While driving, steering suddenly with out warning became extremely difficult and hazardous to drive. Did not feel safe driving and then power steering light came on. This was driving on the street, while turning and driving... I assume this is the power steering and also seemed to be electric because of lights deeming on radio...unknown.

MAZDA5 4-cyl

  • 9,284 miles
We purchased our 2007, Mazda 5 new in Jan. 2007 from a local dealership. At a little over 9,000 miles the car began to hesitate and we returned to the dealership for the first service to "fix" the problem. To fast forward, here we are Dec. 31st, 2011 and now we are dealing with not only hesitation and stalling, but now the car actually "bucks" while driving it only adding to the dangers of driving it. This is a well documented problem as we have continued to return it the same dealership each time only to be told it was "fixed". this has become a safety concern, and a financial woe. Why the lack of concern by Mazda and other agencies that know of this problem but have not made Mazda admit the problem and recall these cars before someone is killed. Not everyone is in the position to just buy another car if they seem to have a "lemon". I would really like to know my recourse in all of drive a unsafe car", to hope I or a family member won't be hurt of killed in it until such time I can trade it in? and then feel guilty that some other person is purchasing my unsafe car" I hope that there is "some hope" by contacting your Agency. If nothing else if you won't help me, maybe I can warn someone else about this car.
