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.

2008 Mazda 3. consumer states persistent clunking noise from the suspension and two of engine mounts are coming loose the dealer determined the noise was coming from the rear shocks and replaced them. The noise, however persisted. The consumer decided to take the vehicle to an independent repair shop and they determined that both front axles needed to be replaced and there was a crack in the cv boot. The consumer then went back to the dealer to have them inspect the vehicle. The dealer determined the struts mounts, rear sway bar links, bushings and clams all needed to be replaced.
