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 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,400 miles


Had 30000 mile service done prior to a 1000 mile one way vacation trip. After arriving at our destination washed car at coin car wash. Drove car for about 10 minutes and engine began surging, transmission would not move from second gear, and vehicle speed would not exceed 20 mph. Exited roadway and parked vehicle overnight. At engine startup vehicle ran fine but with engine light on. Drove 60 miles and vehicle suffered complete shutdown on freeway. Vehicle coasted to a safe stop and called Mazda roadside. Vehicle would not even turn over. Vehicle towed to dealership, ignition coil and PCM were replaced. Dealer approved vehicle for 1000 mile return trip. After only 4 hours of driving engine light came on again. Exited interstate, parked vehicle and called Mazda roadside. Vehicle currently under repair. This was two identical failures within 200 miles of use.
