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 rear hatch door does not latch and door can swing open. Problem started around 45K and all the dealer would do is spray the mechanism with wd-40. The problem kept getting worse and I am fed up. As a result of this I would not buy another Subaru. This problem has been on going for at least 2 years, it happens everytime the hatch is open...it never latches when closed.
