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 2011 Mazda 6 has a hard shift from 1st to 2nd gear leading to a hard jerk to all passengers. The car seems to jump at times or feels like some one hit it from the back. I have checked online, and it seems to be a problem with many Mazda 6.

When I back up and stop with my foot on the brake I shift the car to drive and it feels and sound like the rear end is coming out.
