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.

2006 Mazda MAZDA6 Owner Comments

I have a 2006 Mazda 6 with a VIN in the recall range, except I live in Michigan so it is not recalled. My inflator will continue to degrade, at a slower rate than those in high humid areas, but it will eventually get to the point where it will have taken in enough moisture to disassemble when deployed. I want this taken care of before it blows up. The supplier has demonstrated an unwillingness to acknowledge it has a problem. No one seems to be concerned that a supplemental safety device can do more harm than good. Ask those involved in the industry and you will get a common response that "death" is not an acceptable failure effect. There is probably a pretty damn good reason no other airbag inflator manufacturer uses ammonium nitrate in their propellant formulations. Inflators leak. Always do and always will. You cannot keep the moisture out indefinately. And I definately do not want to wait until more innocents are killed or maimed by these devices before mine too is recalled.
