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.

The clutch on my Mazda 6 no longer works correctly and I only have 33,248 miles on my car. Mazda usa said there's nothing they can do about it. They said before they'd even consider any help, I should take it to a Mazda dealer (17 miles from my house) and have it diagnosed ($110 for diagnostic testing). In order to get it there, I'd have to have it towed because it's so far from where I live, I'd have to pay for the tow to and from the dealership. The cost estimate for the Mazda dealer to replace my clutch is $1000-$1300. They went on to state that if it is a defective item, before helping me, they'd look to see whether I was "loyal" in getting the car serviced with one of their dealers. The closest dealer is 17 miles away, am I supposed to drive that far for an oil change? I bought the car in 2005 brand new from santa monica Mazda which has since closed down. The clutch went out while I was driving on the freeway and I've been driving manual cars for 20+ years. This is not fair and Mazda doesn't care. They really suck...as this clutch should have lasted 100,000 miles. The consumer stated Mazda replaced the clutch on September 2, 2010 under the goodwill program. The issue has been resolved.
