Question TSB question

First off, thank you for posting these. Second, does your Mazda have to still be under warranty for a TSB to be repaired for free? I just got my Mazda 3 home from the shop yesterday & the problem I paid $175 to be repaired is listed on this TSB report--the broken #3 engine mount.
Thanks.
PK

Hi and Welcome, pkme!!

To answer your question, yes it does. A TSB is not a recall and therefore the car companies and dealers are under no obligation to repair the problem for free, unless covered by warranty.

Cool thanks

Thanks for your reply. Well, I kind of thought that, but I was *hoping*! 6 months late--oh, well--at least I don't have car pymts anymore!
Thanks for the welcome. I think I will be able to get some good info on this site. That will be really helpful, b/c I would really like this car to last me a long time, & I know very little about cars...
Thanks again.

If it makes you feel any better, pk, I had a similar situation happen to me.

Right before my car was out of warranty I was having a problem tracked to the MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor. They replaced it and then replaced it again a day later. This seemed to fix the problem.
But then a few months later, Dec 24th, the day before Christmas to be exact, the car started acting like the MAF was bad again. It jerked and acted like it didn't want to take fuel when I was trying to accelerate. I was afraid of an inconvenient break-down at some point.
I got an appointment for Dec 26th and waited. I was told the fuel purge valve had "gone bad," that the diagnostics were $100, the part was $180 and labor for 1 hr. Well, I need my car and didn't want to mess around in the middle of winter, so I begrudgingly said to go ahead w/the repair.
My car sat in the shop for another 1/2 hr w/o being touched, then in the service department parking lot for another hour before they came and got me. The repair took 10 mins and the purge valve is right up front in the engine compartment. It's a little plastic valve w/a hose attached to it. I got all that at the bargain price of $350 post Christmas day.
If I had known what and where this purge valve was, and how easy it was to replace, I would have saved myself about $200. It is no harder than changing a spark plug!! But I thought it was underneath the car, back by the fuel tank near the RR suspension/brakes which is a very tightly packed area.
My car was then about 4 months out of warranty.

Hello Tracker,
Do you have any TSB's on engine failure - timing chains - turbo.
I am among thousands with disputes on 07-08 CX7's that are being denied warranty repair service because of excessive SLUDGE. This is the loophold Mazda is using. I am waiting for an independent adjuster to look at my car in the next 24 hours to make a final decision...i need help fast. please feel free to email me at [email protected] I will respond with my contact number. tks warde

I'd like the details of the tsbs relating to condensation in the rear combination lights of mazda6 models.

The url for the list is here :
Mazda results under Recalls & TSBs | AutoMD

I can only see limited info on automd though - don't know why - do you have to pay for full access?

I heard they stopped covering this with the warranty, but I want the tsb's leading up to that decision an how they used to handle it.
