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.

There is a recall on my airbags and I'm just wondering how many letters and warnings I'm going to get before they do something about it. I have had no less than four warnings and yet no parts and no solution. They either need to fix it or stop warning me about it. I know it's crap, they don't need to tell me it's crap every 4 months and then refuse to fix it.

Takata recall the lack of information about getting this repaired ("no parts are available" is the only info I have) is unacceptable. On top of that, I just sat on hold for almost a half hour waiting for my call to be answered, and the rep picked up, acted like she couldn't hear me on the phone and hung up on me. I have a letter saying I shouldn't let people ride in the front seat of my car because its unsafe, but then Mazda's site says oh its safe enough, never mind my driver's airbag where I sit to drive the damn car is affected too. Mazda has to get its act together and get these things fixed immediately.
