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.

2012 Subaru Impreza Owner Comments

problem #1

May 112012

Impreza 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 300 miles


The contact owns a 2012 Subaru Impreza. The contact stated that while driving 15 mph, he noticed that the doors would not lock on their own. The contact also stated that the doors would not open without engaging the lock button. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer. The manufacturer was contacted and they stated that the vehicle was operating as intended. Updated 7/26/12 the consumer also stated if he locked the doors and tried to exit the drivers door (or any of the doors), the door must be unlocked before the door will open. Updated 08/07/12 the consumer stated with all the vehicles he has driven/rented, he has never seen a situation where this was the case. In the event of a crash where fuel is leaking, the extra seconds needed to reset the lock could be the difference between getting out the car without injury or suffering significant/fatal injury.
