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.

2007 Subaru Forester Owner Comments

Sunroof was not closing properly. It was later determined that the electrical sunroof motor was going bad and needed to be replaced due to a bent sunroof frame. The sunroof motor was covered under my Subaru extended warranty, however the bent sunroof frame was not. Since the sunroof was hardly used in the past 5 years, I maintained that it was either a manufacturing defect or an assembly error. Subaru refused to pay for the frame replacement. Therefore, by replacing just the motor I still have the problem of the bent sunroof frame which in time will make the sunroof motor go bad. I encourage others with similar sunroof problems to file complaints. With enough complaints, Subaru may decide to cover these repairs under their classic extended service warranty.
