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.

One day the front accessory socket just stopped working. I checked all the fuses including the one immediately behind the socket. Then the other day the rear accessory socket stopped working as well, same thing - can't find a blown fuse anywhere .. sounds like Subaru uses really cheap wiring.
