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.

Burning oil smell traced to leaking oil pan. New shortblock installed May 2004. Oil dripping on catallytic converter giving off smell when idling and stopped. Subaru NA states since old pan mated to new block they can't warranty (how do we know it's not the new block?) Dealer covered half the cost to reseal (same dealer that installed it, yes I am a glutton for punishment). Don't know if it still leaks or not but see other complaint as to where this one left off.
