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.

2004 Mazda MPV does not like stop and go traffic. The engine fan runs nonstop and whines higher when the vehicle is stopped. Van can accelerate to 25+ miles on city street without pressing the gas pedal. Bringing the car to a stop, I can feel the car wanting to jump out like a race horse at red lights. The car will still jump forward if foot is not securely on the brake. The engine computer chip has been replaced, which fixed the issue initially, however, the problem appears to be back. Weird but worth mentioning.
