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.

July 30 received a recall notice for passenger airbag in 2006 Subaru Impreza. I have called Subaru at least 5 times to ask when parts will be available. Each time I call Subaru to check on parts I get a different answer as to when parts will be available. In July, I was told 6-8 weeks. After 8 weeks, I was told that parts would be showing up in 1-2 weeks (at the end of September). At the end of September, I was told parts would be available sometime between September and February. When I called a week later, I was told parts would be available at the end of September. I didn't hear from anyone so I called at the beginning of October, when I was told parts would be available in February. It has already been over 12 weeks since I received the recall and have not been able to drive with anyone in the passenger seat of my car. I would like to know what NHTSA is doing to assist in getting these cars repaired.

Takata recall. This car is unsafe to drive due to the airbag issue. Yet, Subaru is not replacing the airbag in a timely fashion. Thus, my child is forced to drive this unsafe car because we can't afford a new car. The airbags need to replaced immediately.

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.
