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.

2003 Subaru Legacy Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 012004

Legacy 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,500 miles


Shortly after buying the vehicle sunroof shattered. The sunroof was open and loudly cracked as if in an explosion. Took vehicle to Subaru dealership and they insisted a rock must have struck vehicle. After insisting this was not so owner agreed to pay for replacement. Currently, a year and a half later this happened again without any foreign object striking the sunroof, and no evidence of any kind. The second time this happened without notice and was closed when the crack was discovered. Vehicle currently awaiting repairs. Consumer felt this sun roof was defective with some sort of undue stress.
