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.

2003 Mazda Protege Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 252004

Protege 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles


While driving at about 40 mph back right tire went flat instantly without warning. Tire make: Bridgestone potenza P195/55R15. The tire showed no signs of wear or damage and was only driven on for 25,000 miles. I took it to a repair shop (pepboys) and they found that the inside steel belt had broke and caused the tire to fail. I replaced that tire with another brand (cost $100), and still have the damaged Bridgestone tire for evidence.
