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.

2001 Mazda MPV Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 012008

MPV 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


External plastic door handles on both sliding doors on 2001 Mazda MPV have broken off while shutting door. Driver side handle has been broken 1 month. The passenger side broke on Jan. 1, 2008. Seems to be related to cold outside temperature. Doors now must be opened with the inside handle. In the event of an accident, it would be difficult to get rear passengers out. Since one side was operational until now, no attempt was made to take van to the dealer because of high cost to fix it.

The sliding doors (both) do not lock in place. If van is parked facing a downward slope, doors can accidentally close and crush whatever is in their path. All other minivans have sliding doors that lock when fully open. They will close only if the handle is pulled. This is not the case on the Mazda MPV.
