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.

Power steering went out suddenly 2 days ago. Had the car towed to the dealer. Dealer claims the power steering pump and switch were after market parts. That is impossible as the car has only been serviced by our local Mazda dealer where I bought the car. They are covering it under the warranty, but can't seem to figure out when the power steering pump and switch were "replaced".
