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.

Driving on interstate at approx. 65 mph. Steering started feeling a little "soft" and then immediately started feeling "notchy" and the dashboard annunciator panel started giving warnings "power steering failure" "steering will be difficult", "scbs needs inspection", "fow needs inspection". the traction control system (tcs)/ dynamic stability control (dsc) indicator in the tachometer display area lit up and stayed illuminated (I believe that indicates a tcs/dsc malfunction). We were about 2 miles to the interstate exit and another 3 miles to our home so we drove at reduced speed to exit and then to home. Car would occasionally try to jerk to the side, occasionally require significant extra force (intermittently) to steer, occasionally only needed "normal" amount of effort to steer, occasionally there would be a loud "growling" with a significant vibration that could be felt in the steering wheel.

The contact owns a 2014 Mazda Mazda6. The contact stated that while making a left turn 10 mph, the steering wheel seized as the ABS warning light illuminated. As a result, the contact crashed into a curb and a light post. The contact sustained a neck, a back, and a nerve damage in the elbow that required medical attention. A police report was filed. The vehicle was towed to a salvage yard. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 25,000.

While turning corner steering unit locked and power steering failure and scbs failure lights. Almost hit a tree before I regained control of the steering wheel. Had car towed and dealer state no alarms where present and gave me back the car. While driving back home same failures happened. Back at the dealer and told again no warning lights on but they will keep it to test drive. I have taken pictures on the warning lights. The steering unit needs to be replaced this is a very dangerous driving condition.

The steering wheel column makes a vibrating noise when the car's driving on bumpy roads, sounded like something's loosen. I discovered it right after I picked up the car from the dealer lot when it had 115 miles. I went back to a Mazda dealer to report the problem and they said it is a common problem that they've seen before and Mazda had a solution for it. So they fixed it, but that was two weeks ago and now the steering wheel column is making the vibrating noise again.
