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.

Mazda 5 premature tire wear on toyo tires. The Mazda has 24712 miles, but only ~15000 are on the toyo tires due to running snow tires all winter and there is cupping and inner tire wear. Alignment was checked at Mazda and rear was slightly out of spec (-0.03). Mazda denies ever hearing of a tire problem on their Mazda 5S, when the topic is all over their web. When I purchased the car the saleman assured me Mazda had resolved the premature tire wear that had been seen in the uk where the Mazda 5 appeared before the usa.

Premature tire wear is a huge problem. Had to replace the front 2 factory toyo tires at 8,777 miles (Sep 2008) due to even wear that placed the tires in the "red". replaced the same two front tires (which were falken) at 24,437 miles (July 2009) because of even tire wear that placed the tires in the "red". I am now on my third set of tires at only 24,500 miles. Both times that tire replacement occurred, vehicle was taken to local Mazda dealership for alignment check and to verify what the cause of the abnormal, premature wear is. Both times the alignment was not off and there was no determining cause for the premature wear of the front two tires.
