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

Jun 112015

Forester XS 2.5L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles


First off it is very loud, now more in depth the part next to the mirror wears off and the window gets loose, thus air comes in. This causes a very loud wind noise at any speed over 35mph. To fix this you replace that part next to the mirror holding the window, and possibly the weather strip around the door. OR the cheap way to get some screen spline and stick it under the weather strip around the door to bring it closer down. This may not fix anything, or might.
