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.

2004 Mazda RX8 was repaired on 2/27/09 at hernando mistubishi the service department for gulfview motors, due to the fuel gauge reading incorrectly and the vehicle running out of gasoline on a reading of a 1/2 of tank. On 2/28/09, after vehicle was supposedly repaired, the 2004 Mazda broke down due to in accurate fuel reading, a day after the vehicle was serviced for this problem. The check engine light also came back on and has consistently stayed on. John morris and linda sanford were both aware that this was a major problem that clearly fails the required nys motor vehicle inspection. The vehicle needs to be repaired at Mazda and it is the responsibility of gulf view motors. I have driven to syracuse, N.Y. out of my way and paying for gasoline to speak with Mr. Paul corey, service manager for Mazda.

I purchased my automatic RX8 in late Jan. 2004. As I write this, I have averaged 14.3 mpg with mixed driving conditions (city and highway) during my first 3000 miles. My worst tankful was 12.3 mpg. Mazda North America refuses to address my issue, which is: My fuel economy is well below the estimated fuel economy on the sticker. Either there is something wrong with my RX8 or Mazda has intentionally misrepresented the fuel economy of the RX8.
