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.

During certain times of the day in the morning and afternoon when the sun is at an angle through the front door windows there is a blinding glare on the infotainment screen as well as the high gloss clear cover that covers the area around the 7 inch screen. Even with sunglasses on it is like looking into the sun. This is a serious safety issue and design flaw. My brother has the same issue on a used 2015 Legacy that he just bought. In addition the silver metallic like strip above the glove compartment creates a piercing glare.

We picked up a brand new Subaru Legacy yesterday and drove it approximately 75 home late in the afternoon. After I got on the interstate travelling East there was a terrible, blinding glare coming off the infotainment/climate control area. It is covered with a very glossy material. Some glare also came off the silver trim on the dashboard above the glovebox, and to the left of the driver console, but the worst is the infotainment screen. I was blinded, distracted, and ended up with a blinding migraine. Can't Subaru come up with a non-glare film for this?

The headrest angle is completely uncomfortable. It will cause people do accident, because they can't drive with ease.
