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.

2015 Subaru Legacy Owner Comments

My 2015 Subaru Legacy has a very abrupt throttle tip-in (the manner in which power is delivered upon depressing the gas pedal). Push the throttle a little and nothing happens and then a little more and it takes off like a shot! not safe when pulling into tight parking spaces. I called my Subaru dealer and I was told it is caused by the cvt transmission design. Subaru needs to reduce the abruptness of the throttle tip-in for safe operation. This is unsafe and scary in tight parking situations.

Upon low speeds transmission howls, hesitation followed by fast acceleration. Key insertion into ignition is difficult and rough.
