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.

2009 Subaru Impreza Owner Comments

problem #2

Driver side sun visor is faulty. We replaced it 12 months ago and it is broken again. The internal spring/clip fails, so the sun visor hangs down, and impairs vision when driving. This is very dangerous, and we have nearly crashed twice due to this. I have contacted Subaru to inform them of this. A quick google search proves it's a well-known issue, and has been since 2000. Please help make this a product recall and replace all of the cheap visors that are currently installed before there is a fatality.
