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.

2012 Subaru Forester. Consumer writes in regards to brake system failure recall notice. The consumer stated from the day she purchased the vehicle, the brakes did not seem right. The brake pedal seemed too soft and there was extended pedal travel. She had to pump the brakes in order to stop in time. Also, when sitting at a light with her foot on the brake pedal, the pedal would suddenly just sink downward an inch. Also, at approximately, 17,000 in May 2014, the brakes began pulsating. The dealer machined the rotors and stated it was normal. The consumer even though the her year, was not included in the recall, she still experienced the same symptoms.
