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.

1998 Mazda MPV Owner Comments

We do not feel that we should have to replace the fowlerers when it is part of the engine. The vehicle is still under 50,000 mile and the inservice date is 5-29-1998. Its only 3 months after the factory warranty. Whick means it was problay bad at the time it was still under warranty. We had only had it 2 weeks before we heard tapping coming from the engine, . we took it to rose city motors and they told us it was bad fowlers and Mazda said we should replace all fowlerers whick cost $1,500 dollars. They are will to only charge us half. We do not consider this as fair. The engine is a major part of a vehicle. Its scary to think your buying a good vehicle and something is wrong with the motor already.
