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.

2001 Subaru Legacy Owner Comments

Legacy 4-cyl

The paint is chipping off of my rear bumper near the driver's side under the tail lights. I took the car to the dealer when I was having another issue looked at (my routers keep warping). The dealer called and said the paint guy would take a look and let me know. I picked up the car after hours and there was no info about the paint. When I called they told me it was never looked at. I had to take the car back to the dealer. The paint guy looked at and said that he can't make a decision on paint, it has to be made by the Subaru rep. It has been probably 2 months and no one has contacted to tell me when the rep would be at the dealer to look at my car. I attempted to call and was told they have never received his schedule.
