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.

2013 Subaru Legacy. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle acceleration problems. The consumer stated the engine stalled quite frequently on acceleration, usually at speeds of 35 mph. It would occur when going up slight hills, down hill and level roads. The engine would re-start itself after loosing 5-10 mph. Applying the accelerator made no difference. The dealer reprogrammed the computer, but the problem returned, shortly thereafter. The dealer was unable to find anything wrong.
