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

problem #1

Jul 012004

MPV 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,200 miles


1. use of cruise control on West virigina turnpike with MPV 2. cruise control fails to maintain set speed. Speed will vary +/- 3 mph. In going up hill cruise control over speeds set speed by 3-4 mph, sometimes accelerating at the increased speed by several seconds. At 70 mph this causes the driver to have to brake to avoid rear ending the car in front even though the car ahead may be 8 or more car lengths away. This is a totally unsafe condition. 3. dealer would do nothing to repair saying that the speed variation was within mfg. Limits?
