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.

problem #5

MAZDA6 4-cyl

  • 120,000 miles

All of a sudden our car started making a horrific sound, especially when accelerating. We took it to a mechanic who had to replace the timing chain kit and tensioner assemblies. Doing simple online searches for this problem, this appears to be a major issue with a lot of Mazda vehicles, yet still there has not been a recall covering this issue.

MAZDA6

  • 84,808 miles
Mazda6 purchased - current mileage 84808- discovered oil leak at engine rear main seal. Service mgr offered to correct problem. Oil leak not noticeable-oil dropping on under engine shield and coagulating. Low mileage might indicate problem existed at time of manufacture. If so, replacement of vehicle is proper action on part of manufacturer/seller. Oil changes have been done frequently and on time, however Mazda is refusing to help with cost due to warranty expiration and the fact the car did not have a oil change at the dealership every time. The Mazda warranty does not explain that the oil filter has to be Mazda brand it states that it should be Mazda compatible. Due to this inconsistency many Mazda's are having engine failure such as mine. My vehicle is still in my driveway, awaiting a new engine, that I cannot afford. Please help!! for everyone reading this that is looking to buy a Mazda don't!!! Mazda is a horrible car!

MAZDA6

  • 66,000 miles
Interior component of engine failed, causing the engine to throw a rod at 66,000 miles. Not normal wear and tear, dealer & corporation are refusing to cover cost of repairs, nor are they willing to investigate an apparent manufacture error, or accept full responsibility.

The O-ring use to seal the oil filter housing cannot be sealed to the body of the car unless proper caution is taken. The consequence could lead to oil loss and destruction of the engine.
