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

problem #1

Aug 062009

Forester 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,819 miles


The contact owns 2007 Subaru Forester. She purchased the vehicle brand new in July 2007 and in August of 2009 she smelled fumes in the vehicle. The dealer replaced the fuel cut roll valve since it was cracked, and the dealer replaced the failed part with the same defected part; therefore she could experience the failure again. She contacted the manufacturer who stated that there were no recalls related to the failure; however, they offered her $2,500 as a down payment towards a new vehicle. She declined the offer and wants the dealer to buy the vehicle back. When the vehicle had 1300 miles on it she had the front axles replaced. She no longer feels safe driving the vehicle. The current mileage was 15,000. Updated 3/12/10 updated 09/28/10
