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.

When coming off the freeway or driving through town, the engine starts to surge. The engine RPM is around 2000 and will not come to an idle. Almost cannot stop the vehicle. Very hard brake pedal due to low engine vacuum, caused by the engine RPM being so high. There is not a consistent basis for this happening.. the repair shop has replaced the throttle body assembly, mass air flow sensor and purge solenoid. Same results. The check engine light does not come on. No codes are stored in the computer. The gas pedal is not sticking and no floor mats interfering with the gas pedal.

Pressed clutch in loud noise heard then grinding. Pedal stuck to floor while in traffic. Car I had happily owned 2 Mazda 6 2006 sedan and wagon and was considering another when the diesel comes out. That was last week. This week without warning the clutch pedal went to the floor and made a loud bang grinding noise. Car has extended warranty from Mazda we had told Mazda for over a year hard to get into reverse and 1-2 chatter noise but never got any resolution on this. Took car in dealer said it would be a clucth which is not covered I was not happy but somewhat ok with that. It turns out that went the part failed throwout bearing it destroyed the transmission and that is not covered (Mazda customer service must know about the problem as they tell you not covered and basically hang up on you. Same with mepp which I paid a great deal of money for bumper to bumper extended total care which is supposed to cover manual trans but somehow does not. Getting rid of both cars and may have to junk my other car which went from being worth 10K to 0. in an instant by a bearing which should be covered. Don"T buy Mazda they don't stand behind the product. Always dealer serviced and just was serviced and passed Mazda (green light thing they give you every time it's serviced making you feel like it's all good which is a lie. $3000 to replace the clutch is insane it's not a skyline gtr.
