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.

Baja 4-cyl

  • 182,837 miles


Starting Dec 2004 problems keeping alignments/tires (mileage 28,176), ending in May 2013 with complete rear wheel cradle & drive train replacement (mileage 182,837) after the drive line dropped out on to a brace at approx 35 mph after repeated repairs and complaints about drive-feel of vehicle. Had just exited 70 mph freeway and was on a secondary road. Was never notified of the 'voluntary' recall by Subaru for the rear cradle issued Apr 2003, before vehicle was purchased.
