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.

Rattles inside passengers compartment with 2003 Mazda 6 sedan. Rattles come from front passengers side close to the passenger airbag. Dealer did not know where the origin of the rattles, it is becoming louder each day. Worry it may cause failure of airbag during an accident. Incident date was the original date when we noticed the rattles.
