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.

2009 Subaru Forester Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 152013

Forester 4-cyl

  • 62,893 miles


We are 15,000 miles into 4 new (April 2012 purchased, mounted May 2012) P225/55zr -17 pirelli P6 all-road 2007 production tires. I have had the tires inspected and balanced at regular service intervals and on this occasion (feb2013) was asked how old my tires were because they were in need of replacement and would likely result in a ticket by german police if stopped. By our mechanics estimate our tires looked three-four years old. Because we live oconus we purchased our tires through He recommended we try working with them to seek resolution, because our tires are not in compliance with german law and potentially unsafe.
