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.

2010 Subaru Impreza Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 8,000 miles


Before the failure white smoke came out the tailpipe and the engine was hesitating. Piston #4 had a failed ringland causing the engine to fail. To correct the failure the engine had to be taken apart at the dealer and have new parts installed. The car was out of my possession for two weeks. The car had only ~8000 miles on it and it appears to be a very common problem on 2008-2010+ Subaru Impreza sti's.
