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

Feb 192009


  • 35,000 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Subaru Forester. The rear driver's side tire went flat and was replaced with a yokohama donut spare tire. While driving approximately 30 mph, the spare tire began to lose traction with the road surface and caused the vehicle to skid sideways. He slid into a snowbank and collided with a snowmobile trailer. There were no injuries. The vehicle was still able to be driven and was taken to a shop. The contact purchased a tire. The snowmobile trailer was slightly damaged. He believes that the donut spare tire should not be used in vehicles and are safety hazards. The current and failure mileages were 35,000.
