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.

2006 Subaru Forester Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 052007

Forester 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


On Oct. 5,2007 - I was stopped at a traffic illegal alien without a drivers license was looking for his cell phone and traveling at least 15-20 miles over the posted speed - slammed into the back of my car. It sent my car through the intersection and turned it completely around. While this was going on the seatback of my driver's seat collapsed onto the back seat. Because of the collapse - my seatbelt did not protect me - it nearly severed my left ear. I have no memory of any of it. I have a brain slosh injury - (similar to shaken baby syndrome). I have double vision, neck pain, and back pain. I have memory problems and lost two weeks pay for the two weeks I missed of work. I still have all these problems a month later, but unfortunately, if you want to eat and have bills to pay - you have to work!
