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.

1997 Mazda Millenia Owner Comments

problem #1

(reported on)

Millenia S 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 209,000 miles


Initially my vehicle was overheating constantly. The repair person said I need a new thermostat, reservor, radiator, hose, and water pump. I also had the timing belt replaced as well. Then one year later, the problem repeated itself, the overheating issue. So, a new repairer replace the heater core hoses and the problem contiued one week later again. Then he disconnected the heater core. so now I have no heat or defroster. It worked for 2 week max. then it overheated again. white smoke came from the tailpipe and the car continued to overheat. I spent within one year approximately $3,500.00 for this car and it is now permanently parked in my father's back yard.
