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

May 102016


  • 106,200 miles


I purchased a 2006 Subaru Forester from a used car dealership on 5/10/2016.. it had a new car smell when I first bought it that smelled like armor all, so believed the smell would subside. However, not only did it not subside it has grown worse. I have been experiencing physical reactions to this smell. My eyes have been burning, nose irritation, sore and swelling throat and the worst I'm having asthma attacks ever since I've started driving this vehicle. I'm not sure what to do at this time so have been investigating, hich has lead me to this site.
