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.

2013 Subaru BRZ Owner Comments

problem #2

The homelink mirrors in these cars have been a very big issue. I have been in for at least three repairs within the last year. The first night I took my car home, the rear-view mirror fell off and hit the dash of the car. This could have distracted someone and made them run off the road. They repaired it as soon as possible, but they have never been able to completely take the vibrations away. You can't see anything when looking in the rear-view mirror, because it shakes so much. There are forums full of people online with the same complaint. Subaru did change the backplate design recently, but it doesn't seem to have fixed the issue. I've noticed that it's worse when it's hot outside. The mirror seems to loosen. It has not fallen again, but I think it's just a matter of time.

The homelink rear view mirror mount failed and the mirror fell onto the center console, hitting the center air vents and damaging the molding, also hitting the shift knob and interfering with shift maneuvers. This also happened to me again one year later on July 18, 2014.
