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.

I love the mazdaspeed 6 car. What I don't like is that recently I've had to borrow another car to drive due to the white smoke from the Mazda. I've had the 2006 mazdaspeed 6 for a year now with 64, xxx miles, drives well, comfort couldn't ask for more. Till randomly I noticed white smoke from the exhaust. I'm a safe driver and keep my car maintained well. The "white smoke" is most visible at idle. I did not wish to get an emissions ticket, so I parked it in my parents garage. Having to borrow a another car is a real pain. I have read upon many site's and forums trying to see if this is a easy fix. It has come to a conclusion it is not. The local Mazda dealers have pushed me away due to this white smoke. I feel disrespected as a Mazda owner to be turned down on any help about this failure. I have spent over a $1000 dollars to try local shops and still this failure is killing my budget. I do hope to receive any information that would be helpful from Mazda Corp. Thank you for your time to read this, as I hope to get this issue resolved.

problem #1

  • Manual transmission
  • 51,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Mazda speed 6. while driving approximately 45 mph, the vehicle began to misfire. The contact stopped the vehicle and allowed it to rest. Afterwards, it appeared to operate normally. The failure later recurred and the contact heard a loud sound coming from the engine compartment, followed by smoke. He pulled the vehicle over and noticed a trail of oil. He opened the hood and noticed that the engine was completely covered in oil. The vehicle was towed and continued to leak. The contact then noticed a large hole at the bottom of the engine block. The dealer was supposed to do a teardown of the motor, but they refused. The vehicle is currently still at the dealer and has not been repaired. The current and failure mileages were 51,000.
