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.

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 radio head unit touchscreen is fairly unresponsive to the touch and buttons are too small. Forces driver to spend more time looking at unit while driving than a responsive touch screen with larger buttons. Several times I was frustrated when screen would not respond to the touch or when the "sound" button was activated/pressed instead of the "up" station/arrow button. The two buttons are way too close. System needs a software update. Also, voiced gps directions provided will not return once a phone call is received or placed. Only the mapped directions are activated and causes distraction when screen must be viewed instead of directions being heard.
