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.

2003 Mazda MPV Owner Comments

2004 Mazda MPV ex. While parked in a parking lot (car turned off), in passenger bucket seat behind driver, I sat down my 2 year old in order to change his diaper. I knew that the seats reclined using the lever on the side. While my son sat on the seat, I turned the lever, expecting seat to recline, however, there is a spring mechanism (?) that automatically tries to close the seat, folding the back of the seat forward, for storage and removal. I was not expecting the automatic folding of the seatback at the force at which it closed. When I pulled the lever the leat back closed on my son and pushed him into the back of the drivers seat (which has a handle on the back of it). He hit his mouth and forehead on the back of the drivers seat and complained of a sore mouth/tongue and had an abrasion on his forehead.
