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.

2004 Mazda Tribute Owner Comments

I was driving and all of a sudden my car began to slow down and not go foward and hesitated to go backwards. I had to have it towed to shop. The shop machanic informed me that the transmission was built without a pressure release valve, and that is what cause it to malfunction. And I would like to know why you don't have transmission in dropdown box of affected parts. MA 10/5
