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.

From letter July 2016 nhsta 16V-354, I have been instructed to not drive the car with anyone in the passenger seat. This is not possible due to carpooling and business uses of the car, and I am gravely concerned. My local Mazda dealership, matt castrucci in centerville, oh, would not provide a loaner car, which I need to work.

I received notification in February and March about fault airbags in my vehicle. After multiple calls to a dealer, they still do not have parts available and it is now May. I have been driver a car with faulty airbags for months and no one has helped remedy the situation.

I received a letter for a recall back in 2015 and whenever I contacted oak lawn Mazda 6750 West 95th St oak lawn ill 60453 they would tell me they never received the part to replace the re-call part, . today March 24 2016 I have tried to contact oak lawn mazada at the number 888 927 3597 on the safety recall notice and the phone number rings and then goes busy therfore I am not even able to schedule an appointment to take my car in to be service for this re call. What type of service is this from the mazada corporation this makes not sense that you are not able to contact the dealership.

Takata recall: I am making a complaint that putnam mazada in burlingame ca will not repair my airbag until April 12 at the earliest. This unacceptable. They state that Mazda does not make the parts available to keep on sight and they must special order them. This potentially puts me in continuing danger from their defective part.
