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

I have a 2003 Mazda MPV ES. It has 60,000 miles on it. My problem is with the brakes, I think! no one can find anything wrong. Know how it sound if you run over an unlevel manhole cover at a slow speed? everytime I brake, there's a clangy metal to metal sound. Loud! I have had the van put on a rack 4-5 times, and no one can visibly see anything wrong. I have looked at all the recalls and see nothing similar to this. It's driving me crazy because it sounds like the bottom is falling out everytime I brake..
