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.

The entire dashboard of my 2010 mazda3 is melting! the majority of it has melted into a thick tar like substance; the rest of it has become very soft, with a sticky thick glue like texture. I took the car to the Mazda dealership and they said they have seen a few of these melting dashboards but I would have to contact Mazda & it probably would not be covered. A couple of days ago I noticed that the tar like "pool of goo" has started a slow thick black drip of liquid dashboard streaming towards one of the vents. The glare of my "ebony oasis" on the windshield makes it very difficult & very dangerous when driving. Combine the blazing Texas sun & houston traffic with that and it's beyond what anyone should have to endure to get to and from work... so I can pay for the car that's literally melting around me! if a manufacturer's vehicle can't take "the (Texas) heat" they should stay out of the kitchen... I mean market!
