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

Mazda 5 started making rattling noises whenever I drive over a rough road. I googled the problem and found out it's very common in many cars built after 2005 and the solution is to replace the sway bar bushing. This will happen to every Mazda 5 and similar I.e Mazda 3. Mazda know there is a issue and no recall. The bad bushing affects the steering to feel less precise than it usually does, since the sway bar moves around terribly. As the vehicle corners, the car feel less steady, with poor handling. There is a tsb out for this problem bulletin no: 02-002/11

Tires make noise at 25+mph. Also tried to rotate them, but the inside thread worn unevenly (also mentioned here by others). The tire shop said that shocks need to be replaced, called Mazda, but they don't cover shocks/struts under power train protection. Also a major clunk at front suspension, mechanics can't figure out.

MAZDA5 4-cyl

  • 16,000 miles
Rear tires (toyo, size 205-50R17) became noticeably noisy, at speeds of approximately 25 mph & above) due to cupping (low spots and high spots) wear on inside edge of tires. I took vehicle to Mazda dealer where I was informed that this is caused by the high camber angle of the rear suspension (I.e., the top of each rear tire leans inward). The camber is non-adjustable.
