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.

The contact owns a 2009 Mazda Mazda6. The contact stated that they turned the defrost on and a yellow sac spider came out of the vent and bit him. The contact spoke with a pharmacist regarding the spider bite and was told that they heard of the failure with the yellow sac spider. The contact spoke with manufacturer and was told that they had considered issuing a recall notice at the end of March or the beginning of April, because this happened in other countries. The contact stated that the manufacturer came to his home, retrieved the vehicle, inspected it by placing a stick and a brush inside the fuel line. If there were no spiders in the fuel line, they would return the vehicle. The contact was concerned since they were not checking the air vents where the spider was. The contact was concerned about the safety risk since the spiders could come out of the vents while driving. The VIN was unknown. The failure mileage and current mileage was 17,800.
