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.

The clutch pedal bracket that holds the assembly to the firewall snapped in two at the point where the bracket meets one of the bolts that holds the bracket to the firewall.

MAZDA6 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 17,000 miles
I have a 2004 Mazda6 wagon with an automatic transmission. I have brought the car into a Mazda dealership twice to fix a rough shifting transmission. The car has 30,000 miles and is under warranty. The shifts between gears are frequently very rough and have been described by others in internet Mazda forums as "shift shock." The burnsville, mn Mazda dealer claims the transmission was designed to shift rough. I have asked to meet with a Mazda representative.
