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.

Millenia P 2.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 95,675 miles


Within 7 months of purchasing the car, Check engine light comes on and we notice a little shake while driving, which gradually turned to heavy shakes when driving beyond 50 MPH, the mech tells me the EGR valve is bad, and quoted me a ridiculous number for a replacement, i said no thanks, i will find my own OEM part, which i did, for about $318. i thought huh...not bad i guess, until he tells me where the EGR valve is F** located, behind the F* engine, which they would have to take out. After pleading with the guy, we settled on $645 for labor, so all together Mazda's crappy exhaust system cost me almost $1000, and that's not even including the catalytic converter problems I've been having. I have another complaint on that. No wonder they stopped making the millenia, as beautiful as it looks, it was a money pit. I feel for the people who have the "S" model with the Supercharger Engine. It has major problems, which cost upward of $4000 for parts and labor to fix, so pretty much if you engine ever craps out in the "S" model, you're pretty much Fed. Shame on Mazda for such a piece of sht build
