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.

2011 Subaru Legacy Owner Comments

Legacy 4-cyl

  • 72,000 miles


For the past 2 months my Subaru Legacy has been stalling and losing power when I roll to a stop and/or when suddenly braking. Almost got rear ended by semi truck on the freeway and multiple times at stop lights in foggy situations. Subaru dealership said if it was an annoyance I should bring it in. Almost dying in a Subaru with my daughters is more than an annoyance. Dealership has known about it but performed a throttle body service, which was futile. Online forums suggest a faulty torque converter and a service#16-90-30. Quotes for replacing it are around $2000. Subaru knows it is due to faulty design of torque converter...this should be recalled. I used to love Subaru and this car, I am now forced to take a loss financially and buy a safer car. Completely unsafe.

The gas cap seal is not working as it should. It only last two years with 40K miles. The vehicle trip on trouble code: P0456 evaporative emissions system - small leak detected. It happen 4 out of 5 times I fill up my gas tank. Each fill up, I verify that the gas cap is tight - click a couple times. The gas cap is cheap. I can replace it myself but does not like Subaru to become cover up like Toyota.
