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

Legacy 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


Car has 78,000 miles. During reg oil change it was discovered ;hat my head gaskets are leaking oil. If not repaired will crack my heads. Cost is $2,2oo-$2,400. This seems very premature for such a serious, expensive repair to be needed. Of course warranty ran out @ 75,000 miles. Didn't extend warranty because in the past I have found that they never cover what breaks.
