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.

Power steering malfunction: Upon starting the vehicle (in the parking lot of my job, to go home) the power steering malfunction light lit up in the dashboard. I checked the power steering fluid level to see if it was low - it was not. I checked the fuses that might be related to the power steering - all fuses seemed okay. I did some research and saw that previous years of the Mazda5 had a recall in place with regard to the power steering. I am concerned my vehicle may have the same issue. I will be contacting a Mazda dealership to have the vehicle looked at to get more information pertaining to this issue.
