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.

2009 Mazda 6 I touring at makes an intense buzzing vibration sound after shifting to drive at first ignition of the day before any acceleration. The vibration comes from the center cupholders in the front, which in turn is from the automatic transmission itself. This is a recurring issue from day one.

I purchased a 2009 Mazda6 on 3/26/2009. Four days after the purchase the new vehicle was in the shop to replace the automatic transmission. The automatic transmission casting had a small weep hole in it which was causing a leak. Dealer had to replace the automatic transmission. For the first 4 weeks I owned the car it was in the garage for 3 weeks.
