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

MAZDA6 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,271 miles


I was driving a hertz rented Mazda 6 2006 with approximately 1,100 miles on it. Was driving at approximately 65 miles per hour when I lost control of the car. The car swerved to the right and hit a truck and swerved back to the left and hit a median. On subsequent inspection, it was found that the steering linkages were faulty and had failed. The police have recorded the incident as mechanical failure. The car was completely damaged due to impact, the side air bag had released and the front left wheel had completely come off (the last mentioned being the cause of the above accident). The rental company was supposed to be investigating the accident, so far I have not got any information back.
