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.

2005 Subaru Impreza Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 272005

Impreza 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 10,000 miles


The left rear strut of my 2005 sti has failed twice in less than 13K miles. The first failed at around 10K and the second at 12.6K miles. Strut failure on a bumpy road at high speed could cause loss of vehichle control and could result in very serious injury or death. Subaru should issue a recall and remedy the problem immediately. On a website for sti owners, there are over 100 owners reporting this same problem.
