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

problem #1

Feb 272003

Impreza 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,500 miles


Vehicle is a Subaru Impreza 2002 equipt with Bridgestone potenza RE92 16"tires. His week at approximately 10,500 miles 2 of these tires developed a pinhole leak in the center of the sidewall approximately a week apart. The leak was so tiny that it was hard to find. A call to a major Bridgestone distributor about this problem was not productive. They said they have no record of such a problem. I have never seen this in any previous tires that I have used. Can you shed any light on this subject?? thought it strange that 2 different tires of the same brand would have the same defect about a week apart. Thank you.
