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.

2010 Subaru Forester Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 102010


  • 15,000 miles


The vehicle is a 2010 Subaru Forester. When stepping on the gas pedal to back up, the car accelerated as if the accelerator had been floored. The car shot up a snow bank and rested on a guard rail still running fast. The car was turned off and the winter mat that came with the car was on the lower part of the accelerator. We do not know if the mat caused the rapid acceleration or there was a malfunction with the car. If this had happened in a busy parking lot someone could have been killed. The mat has been removed from the car. There was damage to the under side of the car and fender.
