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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: Keep an eye on your tire's valve stems. There are reports that they can corrode, break and take your tire from inflated to mush in "what the heck just happened" seconds flat. Otherwise, most owners say it's pretty smooth sailing with this car.

MAZDA5

  • 500 miles
While driving 10 to 20 mph power steering fails followed by all electronics flashing and then by car engine dying. Control of car is very difficult and dangerous. Power steering has failed about 20 times engine failure about 10 times. Dealer told me they found hits on the onboard computer, were able to repeat the problem and eventually tracked it down to the power steering. But have failed to find a problem. They now deny all of this. I question if the car is safe.
