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

problem #1

Sep 072007

MPV 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 107,845 miles


Traveling 65 mph on interstate 275 North of tampa, Florida at 10:30 P.M. on September 7, 2006 when the tread separated on a nearly new (6 week old) Firestone tire. I nearly lost control of the vehicle, skidding sideways to the left and then to the right, almost over turning before being able to stop the vehicle. I also almost collided with another vehicle. The separating tread hit the left back wheel well, tearing out the wheel well cover, damaging the back bumper beyond repair and damaging the front of the wheel well cover and left back passenger side door. The Florida highway patrol was called and a trooper kept his vehicle behind me with his emergency lights flashing while I changed the tire but he did not write a report. Repairs will have to be made.
