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

RX-8 4-cyl

I purchased an 05 Mazda RX8 in Jan of this year. Several weeks ago, I was informed by other drivers that my driver's headlight causes them a distraction because it glows brighter, as if the high beam has come on. I have seen this myself when I drove another car in front of mine. I took the car into service at the local Mazda dealer and was informed that the light is functioning properly because the other car on the lot does it also." I believe this issue needs to be looked into because it is a serious distraction and can cause an accident. From a driver looking back at the RX8 through the rear view mirror it looks as if someone is shining a spot light on them. This is a distraction that can lead to a vehicle accident. This is very serious and I can't seem to get anyone to look into this situation. If there is anyone you can suggest that I speak with, please let me know.
