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.

problem #2

Feb 072005

Impreza 4WD 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 12,000 miles


Windshield started to crack from bottom (below the wipers) and travlled all the way to the right side when ever used fan to defog the windshield. Talked to dealer but refused warrenty coverage, stating impact below the windsheild wipers. I cannot see the so called impact but I have to fix the windsheild. This is a thermal varience crack. Very weak glass, crack has travelled all across windsheild but I am stuck with the cost.
