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.

2001 Subaru Outback Owner Comments

Outback 6-cyl

I have a 2001 Subaru Outback vdc. Since purchase I have had repeated problems with warping of the front brake rotors. The rotors have been turned twice, then replaced by Subaru in April 2003. The rotors have now warped again and are no longer under warrantly. This condition leads to uncontrollable wheel and front end shaking when braking at high speeds. There have been numerous other complaints for this vehicle.
