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.

I have a 2005 WRX sti, and the paint has been chipping off!!! I store my car privately, it only has 18,000 miles on it, and the paint gets chipped off by anything and everything. I wax the car monthly and get it detailed quarterly. What kind of paint chips that fast? I have other friends with Subaru and they have the same problem. Thanks for the 32,000 dollar lemon.
