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

Feb 182005

MPV 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,200 miles


Burring smell came from engine since last maintaince performed to resolve recall. ABS light came on, the vehicle suddenly stopped and had to be jumped to start - this happened three more times and was taken in. The alternator has been determined to be at fault, but it is only days out of warrenty and Mazda refuses to cover.

problem #1

Nov 152003

MPV 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,250 miles
Check engine light on repeatedly( at least 15 times in the past 12 months with the same 4 or 5 codes) car jerks when idling. Replaced O2 sensors, manifold gaskets(2), spark plugs and wires, top engine clean, many times the light was just reset. It was under warranty the first time it went in but even though it is the same thing over and over it is not covered. Dealer said they didn't know what was wrong with it. I could leave it there and maybe they could find something. November, 2003 to December 2003 was at the dealers for "12" different times that the light came on. This November it has started all over again. Do not have the old parts.
