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.

2002 Subaru Impreza Owner Comments

Subaru of America has a technical service buliten about model year 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX's having a leaky fuel like where it enters the injectors. This bulliten is not covered if the car is out of warrenty. Yet the fuel leak is so bad that when the air conditioning is turned on there is a very strong fuel smell comin from the vents. I feel that this bulliten should be a recall and not a bulliten. This kind of problem causes a huge safety rick and if a car were to catch fire from the leaky fuel it could not only destroy the car but also hurt or kill the driver and passengers.
