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.

2006 Subaru Legacy Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 022006

Legacy 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,300 miles


(1) fuel system ceased to operate while vehicle in motion. This was the second occurrence of this problem (supposedly, servicing corrected the problem after the first time) (2) car was stuck inside a nature reserve that has limited access. Although I have the full warranty package, I could not get appropriate service to tow the car out for 1.5 days, and so missed 1 day of work. (3) the first time this happened, the fuel pump and related parts were replaced. This time, I found and replaced a burnt-out fuse for the fuel pump, and the new fuse immediately burnt out when I tried to start the car. It has now been towed to my dealer (1.5 hours away from where the problem occurred). (4) I have no faith in the safety of this particular (brand new) vehicle. If this had happened on the freeway, I would likely have been hit by vehicles from behind. I do not know whether this problem has occurred with other cars of this same model.
