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.

  • 141,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Subaru Baja. The contact stated that while turning at 2 mph, a noise was heard coming from the rear passenger side. The vehicle was maneuvered to the shoulder and the contact smelled a burning odor. Upon examining the vehicle, the contact also noticed that the rear passenger tire was rubbing onto the wheel well and melting. The vehicle was then towed to a private mechanic and the contact was informed that the rear suspension rusted away from the sub frame. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileages were 141,000.
