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.

Driver side door would not open from outside with key or inside with latch. I've been using the key to open the doors for the past year because both remotes stopped working. All doors unlocked but the driver side. It looked like the driver latch was not moving to the fully open position. I lowered the window and tried to move the interior latch manually but it would not move. I entered the door from the passenger side in order to drive. I checked today and there are currently no recalls on my vehicle. I called the dealership and they quoted $280 for a replacement part. Nada says its the vehicle is worth about $2000, I can get about $400 as scrap. I think its time to get rid of a car when it no longer wants to let you in or out of it.

The driver's door on my 2004 Mazda 6 will not open. This car has electric locks. All doors open except the driver's door. The dealership told me the latch was bad and it will cost $400 to repair. This creates a safety hazard. If I am in a wreck, I can't open the door to get out. There should be a way to manually disengage the locking mechanism in case of emergency. This is a manufacturing defect and engineering defect. This is a big safety issue with this car.
