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.

Oil cooler lines on the rx 8 will rust an corrode due to salt on the roads in the winter months in the upper states.. lines rust and corrode causing oil to spray over the engine bay, tires and brakes. Causing a loss traction. And even environmental issues.. oil over the road.this becomes a hazard to drivers behind you.. Mazda has a recall Canada due to this issue.. but will not honor the us at all.. this is seriously needs to be addressed immediately..
