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.

2001 Subaru Impreza Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 222006

Impreza 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles


Driving along the freeway at 60 mph, the left rear tire had a blowout. Upon inspection it was the interior sidewall where the failure occurred. I noticed that in the specific location of the failure, the sidewall was extremely soft; unlike the rest of the sidewall. The tire was taken back to costco; but they refused to accept that it was a defective tire. The tire had 25,000 miles on it; driven conservatively. I do still have the failed tire, and two other tires just like it are still on the car. The tire is a Bridgestone potenza 205/55R16 91W, ultra high performance.
