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.

bad recall repair

December 5, 2014, my Tribute went to Mazda for a recall. Excessive corrosion on the front sub frame is causing frames to split. As part of the recall they add a cross brace to stop the frame from splitting.

January 4 2015 my rear wheel well splits and basically crumbles while I am driving with my 1 year old son. Mazda did not mention any issues with any other part of my frame, there were no notations anywhere. Mazda either let me leave in a very dangerous vehicle not caring for the safety of customers or the cross brace they installed ruined my entire vehicle. I have at least $8,000 invested in this vehicle since I purchased it in July. I want my dam money back. Dealership repairs my vehicle and now its worth, $0000.

I am a full time student/mother who purchased a vehicle that's worthless. SHAME ON YOU MAZDA
