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.

About a month ago I purchased a 2006 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT mt. I have two major complaints that most people complain about. 1) hesitation under acceleration. This problem is known by Subaru. One tech told me that the ECU needs to be reflashed, but that Subaru has not come up with a flash to fix the problem yet. 2) bad smell from the clutch. Happens mostly in stop and go traffic, but occurs at other times too. I've had it happened when I first start the car, after driving it for a long time, cruising on the highway and shifting. It is very bothersome.
