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 RX-8 Owner Comments

I own a 2004 Mazda Rx-8 and was driving to work when the manual clutch pedal shifted from its normal position so far that it got stuck under the brake pedal. I was able to get it home but when looking into the problem, I noticed that the clutch assembly bracket had broken, allowing the clutch pedal to move under the brake. I did some research to find that approximately 40 other people had the same issue with this bracket breaking in the same place on the 2004-2008 Rx-8.
