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.

Windshield was cracked from driver side top under weatherstrip and continued about 18 inches and continuing to crack. Car was parked for 2 days at house. No site of anything impacting it, just a long smooth crack from under the rubber. I believe it to be a stress crack from design flaw.

I was driving normal to work, no speeding, no heavy traffic, traffic is normal, the car in front of me was 3 car-space ahead of me, but all the sudden I saw my front wind shield cracked, it started small, and then as I kept driving, the crack grows longer & longer, then the crack start to split into few more smaller cracks, I didn't see any rocks or didn't hear anything hit the wind shield, it just all the sudden crack a line, watching it grows longer, and then I tried to open my side windows, then the crack would stop growing. I got nervous & drove like 50mph arrived at my work parking lot, but after work when I drove home (at night) I don't notice the crack grows anymore. I suspect it has something to do with the heat & air pressure due to improper installment of the wind shield. Im not sure.

I tried to hold off on a complaint but I think it might be more serious of an issue than Mazda realizes. The vehicle rear windshield shows as blur and double vision when viewing the window while driving. In many cases I would have to double take more than the ordinary to ensure my safety and other around me. The glass would need to be repaired, replaced and/or fixed to avoid an accident when on the road.

The rear view camera, needed for adequate visibility when driving in reverse, does not function under the following circumstances: 1. quickly shifting into reverse after starting the car. In this situation, the top third of the rear view video is covered by a messages that says the car's fm radio is turned off. 2. receiving a text message. If a text message is received while driving in reverse, the entire rear view video is covered by a message that asks if the car should download the new message. 3. if there is a bluetooth gps device in the car. When the bluetooth device first connects and activates the car's audio/voice system, the rear view camera turns off and will not turn back on. The car's audio page is displayed instead of the camera video. Due to these apparent defects, the only way to safely drive the car in reverse is to turn off all bluetooth devices, then start the car, wait for the car's audio system to complete its start up, and only then shift into reverse to begin driving.

When looking into the upper half of the drivers door mirror, the objects appear to look as if you have double vision, but while looking into the lower half, everything appears to be in Focus. I have gone back to the dealer and they could not see the same effect. I have also looked at the same type of vehicles in the dealership and 5 out of 5 have the same effect.
