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.

Was driving my 08 Mazda speed 3 home from being out and when I got home smelt something burning so I looked around the inside to make sure I didn't drop a cigarette and when I didn't see any I got out and popped opened the hood and when I did the motor burst into flames giving me first degree burns across my face and left arm. Nothing has been by Mazda or anyone to find the source of why it happened.
