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

Jan 172006

Legacy 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 1,200 miles


: the contact stated while traveling the windshield wipers turned off after 5 hours of use. The wipers came back on and went off again three times before quitting. The vehicle was towed to a dealership and left over night before it could be inspected the next morning. Upon inspection the windshield wipers worked. According to the owner's manual there is a safety feature that turns off the wiper motor before it becomes too hot. Although the circuit breaker did not appear to be faulty the dealership replaced it. During the return trip the wipers failed again. The vehicle will be taken into the dealership. Updated 2/28/2006 - the vehicle was taken back to the dealer who stated that the problem was faulty brushings in the wiper motor.
