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 4-cyl

  • 75,200 miles
I was driving with my 7 year old in my 2005 Mazda 6 when I noticed the car was accelerating on its own just a little bit. I didn't think much of it at the time. About 2 minutes later the rpms went up and down 3 times( 1000 rpms each time). Immediately after that, my brakes stopped working while I was going about 35 mph. I had the brake pedal floored and it barely stopped in time. I managed to stop with my emergency brake and put on my hazard lights for a few minutes while the car was still running. I had to get out of the road so I attempted to reverse very slowly and the brakes were suddenly working. I pulled the car in a parking lot with no brake problems and got it towed to a shop. The shop is telling me they are not finding any problems but I don't feel safe in the car without an answer! im worried it may happen again and cause an accident next time.
