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 #1

Impreza 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission

I hit a bear at 55mph with the cruise control on. The bear leaped off the bank in directly in front of the vehicle. The crash that resulted in the bear being killed instantly, about 600 lbs. Of bear. The car came to an instant halt with the front end being pushed back, lights, grille, fender, hood, ect. No air bags deployed. After calling Subaru of America, I was advised to let my insurance handle it, but after much argument was assigned a case number of 1020805 by Subaru. This is not a insurance problem, this is Subaru problem. The vehicle was towed back to first team in roanoke Virginia and the collision shop advised me to contact Subaru.
