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.

2004 Subaru Impreza Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 272005

Impreza 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


The contact was driving at 60 mph on the freeway and the throttle stuck. He used the foot pedal brake and it would not stop the vehicle. The emergency brake did slow it down to approximately 40 mph. The rpms registered up to 8000. He shut the vehicle off after it slowed down. The vehicle was towed to the dealership. They checked it and found that there was a recall but it did not include this vehicle due to VIN. The dealership said it was the cruise control cable that made the throttle stick. The vehicle is still under warranty.
