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.

I had gone on a road trip and had returned home. When coming home, the drivers side, window wouldn't go up. Made a noise when trying the put the window up. Same situation as poster below. Had to pay out of my own pocket. Post your comments and share your story.

problem #1

Feb 012008

MPV 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,000 miles

Driver side power window started moving slowly. Totally quit within a couple of days. Mazda Dealer diagnosed a short circuit in the window motor. replaced window motor for around $470. ouch. One year warranty. So far, it continues to work. I see from other sites on the internet that this problem is not uncommon. I wonder, if it happens again, could I just swap out one of the side door motors for the front door motor by myself and save a bundle of money?
