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

Jan 072008

MPV 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,901 miles


2003 MPV's check engine light came on shortly after getting on the interstate. Van had a "stuttering" feel. Even though the van was 5 weeks out of warranty by time, not mileage (39901 miles) I took it to the dealership hoping for a goodwill fix. They said it was the egr valve. I have never seen an egr valve to out so early. Dealership did cover the part and charged me $180 in labor to replace the valve that was only a two bolt removal and extremely easy to get to. Mazda should have covered this fully. I was expecting this to be the famous coil problem.
