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

Complaint pertains to a 2006 Subaru Legacy 4dr sedan. In 2009, we experienced several instances of where the vehicle shut off completely when the driver stopped at a light or stop sign. Could not re-start for a minute or two. Multiple trips to the dealer over 9 months until finally diagnosed as a defective crankshaft sensor. Replaced by dealer (N/C). My reason for the report is that this could of occurred (but did not) on a major highway when a driver would come to a stop due to traffic. A stall on a major highway could put the driver in an unsafe situation.
