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.

first 2 years, accelerated uphill just fine, this past year somebody walking could beat it up the hill, had the vacuum checked, the timing belt etc replaced, did a tune up, when test driving other Mazda mvp they too seem to have an acceleration problem, dealer couldn't explain, i've started to stop other people driving the same car and yes they have acceleration problems and no, they have not figured out why either, can't find any info on Mazda site, talk to dealer, "well bring it in, we'll check it out", It seems to be a common problem which means they out to be able to say "Oh yeah, your bla bla bla needs replaced" So far I'm batting zero for getting to the root of the matter.
