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. the contact stated that there were loose bolts on the rear passenger side suspension. While driving various speeds, the contact heard loud popping noises. The vehicle was taken to the dealer once and they planned on replacing the bushing and tightening the bolts on the suspension. The inner walls of the tires were wearing off due to the loose bolts, which also caused the suspension to slowly detach. The vehicle is currently in the shop for repair. The contact discovered that several other consumers were experiencing suspension failure as well. The failure mileage was 17,000 and current mileage was 21,000.

We bought a 2008 Mazda5 and have had to take it to the dealer twice for loose bolts on the rear right suspension. The car has less than 2000 miles on it. We are concerned about the safety of the car.
