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.

2013 Subaru Impreza. Consumer writes in regards to brake assist system. According to the Subaru manual, the brake assist system assisted the brake power when the driver cannot depress the brake pedal strongly and the brake power was insufficient. Brake assist generated the brake power according to the speed at which the driver depressed the brake pedal. The consumer stated while driving in the right lane, on a rural interstate highway, with very little traffic. With the cruise control set at 65 mph, he immediately had to hit the brake, as another driver moved into his lane. The consumer stated the power assist forcefully slowed the vehicle down, against his will. The consumer stated he found himself struggling with the accelerator pedal, to try and gain speed.
