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.

I received the safety recall letter dated 07/2015 for the driver air bag inflator interim repair- safety recall 7914J NHTSA campaign no. 15V-345 & 15V-382. I went to Mazda dealership to have repair done, I was told that part had to be ordered and was told that part would be in on October 1st, on October 2nd I went to get my car repaired and was told that part was never ordered and that was just a "prompt" letter, and not to worry about it. But I am sending this complaint because I am very concern. I would like for something to be done about getting my car fixed....thanks

While stopped for a traffic light I was impacted from a vehicle behind my vehicle. The impact from the crash did not cause the airbags to deploy. That being said, I am still waiting on Mazda to tell me when they will have the parts to replace the airbag due to the mass recall. I got very lucky this time, but I am not terrified about what can happen now.
