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.

June 2012 - replaced front control arm bushings which were worn after only ~80,000 miles, earlier than would be expected. Rear control arm bushings are also wearing and will need to be replaced. August 2013 - airbag warning light on dashboard came on and stayed on while driving with a passenger in the front seat. Brought the car to the shop who informed me it was a faulty map light assembly. Was also informed that this is common with Subaru's which research online confirmed.

Hello in March 2007 while driving back from boston, MA I was 14 miles from home when a car came around a corner in my lane I looked to my right and there was a telephone pole, so I had to go in to his lane I thought I had it made but we clipped back bumpers so I had slam on the brakes and when I did the car seemed to go faster and now with recall I wonder if my brakes weren't working. Also none (zero) of the 6 air bags deployed and I thought that was odd and the seatbelt gave me all my injuries broken ribs, thumb and a burst fracture of my L2 vertabrae.the last injury was crushed lt foot from the tire and alloy she'll came through the fire wall the other factor was the dealership were I bought my car was trying to find another car for my car because it had so many problems I contacted soa talked many times to [xxx] and the most they would do was give me an extra $500 if I bought a new Subaru.

The passenger airbag status light is intermittent. In cold weather, it does not work, generating an airbag fault. The problem is poor solder in part #84621ag41A. Others have experienced the same problem. legacygt.com/forums/showthread.php/airbag-light-sometimes-console-problemi-149073P2.html it is unknown if the passenger airbag system is functional though the light is off.
