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. Notes: A relatively dependable vehicle that handles well in bad weather, but increasing concerns about turbo failure in the GT probably means you should look elsewhere if you want a car with a little pep in its step.

2005 Subaru Legacy Owner Comments

problem #1

Legacy 4-cyl

My husband noticed oil accumulating on the driveway. He looked and found the driver's front strut had leaked oil on the brake caliper, left front wheel, left front axle rubber boot and the driveway. The dealer has ordered parts to replace the strut. They say the brakes and axle protective boot are unaffected by the oil. I don't know if they will let me keep the strut since the car is new and under warranty.
