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.

2005 Mazda RX-8 Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 282009

The Mazda Rx-8 is having an issue that is coming up more frequently now from a faulty A/C switch or heating system failure. The heat does not come into the vehicle when the heat is turned on and only cold air comes into vehicle. The failure happens in the beginning only randomly until the unit completely fails. The A/C modular is a electronic switch that changes vents and A/C or heat. The vent mechanism still functions but the heat is never transferred into the vehicle. The consequences from this item failing, especially in the winter time, the windshield cannot be defrosted and driving down the road way human exhaustion will cause the window fog up impairing driver's vision. As well as cold temperatures within the vehicle that do not suffice while driving in cold weather.
