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.

Maybe takata recall - our Mazda 5 was parked in the driveway overnight on March 12. We went to drive the car and found the entire interior of the car was covered in a fine powder. The glove box was open. We concluded that the inflator from the front passenger airbag position had gone off on its own. The airbag itself did not deploy. We then drove the vehicle to the Mazda dealership for service, (about 1 mile).

Airbag lit and blinking on the dash board panel. I took it to Mazda dealership to have it check but I was told to pay $150 just to diagnostic test plus labor & parts when repair is will be done by them. Is this part of safety recall ? for airbags.

I bought the car last December 2015, and it is already blinking. I'm not really exactly sure when it was actually started this problem and I believed it's in the drivers side "air bag".

I was driving home after dropping my three children off at school. The road that I live on is woodlake pkwy and the speed limit is fourty-five mph. A lady in a car pulled out in front of me from a subdivision on my right, she was headed in my opposite direction. I hit her as I attempted to swerve and miss her only projecting me further and faster to my left where there were two sets of trees and bushes. After the initial collision I then fought my way through trees realizing I had no brakes I slammed down the brakes and landed on some tree stubs 150 ft away from the crash site. My airbags never deployed.
