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.

problem #3

Noticed the seal that secures the window to the frame of the vehicle has an 1/8 inch opening, a break in the seal lining. On a recent road trip, in may, driver and passenger heard this popping noise, we thought that something was hitting the car top, apparently not, as the right window seal is further stretched out and a break has now occurred. I am concerned that under consistent use and pressure that the opening will continue to stretch out even further affecting the windshield security and the driver. My mileage is limited and very low at this time but very concerned for safety purposes.

The glass panel of 2008 Mazda5 moonroof exploded on highway with no apparent reason. Luckily the inside cover was in place and not many broken pieces fell down from the gap. After a search on the internet, the issue seems not uncommon among Mazda cars and minivans.
