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 #2

Impreza 4-cyl

I was driving down the road and heard a loud noise (almost like a gunshot), and looked up to see my sunroof/moonroof had shattered. The road I was driving on was being repaved, so I did hit a slight bump, but I had driven on the same bump for the previous 3 days and so did all other drivers. I do not know how something like this could have occurred. My car did not bottom-out or hit anything, but somehow the sunroof had shattered.

The sunroof glass exploded as I was driving down the road in my 2012 Subaru Impreza WRX. No impact, calm weather (no debris flying around), no other vehicles nearby (that could have thrown a rock or something).
