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.

MAZDA6 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission

Have a Mazda 6 that continuously has the check engine light come on. Had an incident where the car was failing to accelerate and waited for tow truck. That was the first time I took the car in for repair. Waited 3 weeks before I could get my car back and when I got it back, it happened again 3 more times, and took it in for servicing all those times. I don't want to continue to make a trip to the dealer every month like I have been doing.
