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.

2007 Subaru Impreza Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 302007

Impreza 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 3,000 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Subaru Impreza. The contact stated that when shifting from fifth to fourth gear, the gears become stuck. While attempting to shift into fourth gear, the vehicle shifts into reverse. The contact heard a rattling noise coming from the gear shift assembly. He took his vehicle to the dealer on five occasions to have the gear shift assembly repaired. The dealer repaired the vehicle the first four times. The contact was not sure of which parts were actually replaced, but he believed that the dealer repaired the springs in the gear shift assembly and replaced the exact same parts for all four failures. After the fifth failure, the dealer stated they did not know what else to do to remedy the failure. The manufacturer was unable to provide assistance. The speed was unknown. The current mileage was 5,500 and failure mileage was 3,000. *updated 12/12/07 updated 12/12/07
