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.

The contact owns a 2008 Mazda 5. while driving at approximately 10 mph and attempting to park, the power steering light illuminated. The driver stated that it became very difficult to steer at that point. She was able to maneuver the vehicle to a safe area and turn it off. The vehicle was towed to an authorized dealership where she was informed that the failure was caused by a defective power steering pump. He called the manufacturer and communicated the failure. The contact had planned to have the vehicle repaired at the time of the complaint. The current and failure mileages were 14,428.
