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.

2007 Mazda MAZDASPEED3 Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 012007


  • Manual transmission
  • 15,000 miles


I installed the aftermarket mazdaspeed lowering springs on my Mazdaspeed3, carefully following the supplied instructions. The instructions require removing the bump stops from the strut mounts. I thought this was strange, but I did it, and later found that my right-front tire tread surface had made contact with the top of the inside of the fender. The result was deep circumferential grooves in the tire, and the plastic fender liner was completely worn away in one area. This is potentially very dangerous since it could lead to a tire blowout. And yes, I am certain that the instructions show the removal of the bump stops. I have the instructions and photos of the damage.
