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.

The air bag light came on. I called Mazda to see if there was a recall because I feel this is a safety issue. The light is for the driver position. Mazda (local) states no recall for my SUV but to bring SUV in for a fee to check it out and additional fee if needed. I was advised by Mazda North american operations ok to continue to drive but do have it checked out. They are working with me with this issue.
