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. 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.

Broken fuel cap in a 2009 Mazda5... tried to unscrew fuel cap to fuel vehicle. It would not come off. Tried several times until it broke off. A quick internet search found dozens of similar incidents with Mazda 3's and Mazda 5's. the cap has 2 parts, the outer part is what broke off, while the inner part remains stuck. After the outer part breaks off, it becomes evident the inner part is mistreaded, something not evident while the cap is intact. Will have dealer remove stuck part and check this out, as there are obvious safety concern.
