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.

The power tilt steering wheel has failed and will no longer operate. I believe this to be a safety defect, as the wheel is stuck in an extremely upright position and will not come down, making the car very difficult to steer safely. From my research on this site and others, as well as calls to 5 different Mazda dealerships, this is apparently a common problem. In fact, according to one dealer, the problem is so common that Mazda has begun offering a special repair kit that just includes the defective actuator rather than the entire steering column. It is my view that this is a safety related defect that Mazda should cover under a special service program or by recall.
