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.

Premature brake wear on rear brakes. Both metal on metal. Dealer replaced rotors and pads at no cost. But I do not think this addressed the real problem. I have never had a vehicle wear out the rear brake pads in such a short amount of time not even the front brakes.

Subaru has an inherent brake defect in their 2010-2011 Subaru WRX and WRX sti model cars. The brake sensor in new cars is faulty causing system failure with regards to anti-lock brakes. When brakes are used in a panic situation they lock up causing drivers to lose control with the road and do not provide anti-lock brakes. Drivers are unaware of the brake defect because Subaru has not issued a proper recall in regards to this issue.
