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

With no damage or scratch whatsoever to the front bumper and license plate of my 2001 Mazda van after I hit a pole lightly in a parking lot, I found out that the reinforcement behind bumper was cracked open and the condenser and radiator assembly behind it was severely damaged. I wonder how this kind of damages to the reinforcement, condenser, and radiator could happened when I have no damage whatsoever to any outside parts. I wonder if the reinforcement had any inherent structural problem with a serious implication for the safety of the car. If you can investigate such situation and possibility, it would be much appreciated. I can provide pictures of the damages if required.

While driving on highway, traveling at 60-70 mph, and driving behind an 18 wheel truck, vehicle will become harder to control due to wind pressure. Contacted dealer, and the dealer is not willing to do anything.
