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.

The contact owns a 2007 Subaru Forester. The contact stated while driving approximately 25 mph, the front driver's seat separated from the base of the vehicle without warning. The dealer advised that the weld connecting the seat frame to its base had fractured. The vehicle was repaired at the manufacturer's expense. Within two years, the seat began to rock back and forth. The dealer replaced the pre welded seat bracket to correct the failure. The contact's case was escalated to corporate who advised that the vehicle could possibly be unsafe to drive. The contact was not comfortable driving the vehicle and believed a safety defect existed within the vehicle. The failure mileage was approximately 55,000 and the current mileage was approximately 69,500.
