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.

2004 Subaru Forester Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 142010

Forester XT 2.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 127,000 miles

The XT Forester eats oil almost as fast as the gasoline. Ever 1000 miles I had to dump a quart of oil in it. If I changed the oil every 3000 miles without adding oil the dip stick was dry, and a lot less oil came out than went in. It was bad enough that in the few months before I got rid of the car, I never changed the oil, I just kept adding it every three gas tanks.
