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.

MAZDA6 6-cyl

  • 31,000 miles


I returned to my vehicle after work and the vehicle was dead except for the remote keyless entry and lights. The vehicle would not start and there was no accessory or on power. The dealer stated that the steering wheel lock and push button start had malfunctioned. I was quoted a repair bill of $1,660, which includes more than $1,000 in parts (parts numbers gs3M-66-15xd and gsyd-67-5dzg ). these are basic systems that failed after only 31,000 miles of use on a vehicle that was maintained very well.
