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.

  • 68,000 miles


Vehicle sunroof failed after approximately 5-6 operations. Vehicle had approximately 68000 miles on 11/30/04 when taken to dealership for repair. Due to the minimal usage prior to failure, it was expected and requested that Mazda pick up the repair expense. They diagnosed failure of the motor assembly requiring complete replacement of the system for $1678. Mazda has refused to pay for this.
