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.

2006 Subaru Outback Owner Comments

problem #1

2006 Subaru Outback. Hi, problem (1) head rest is so big that between the seat belt strap and the head rest there is no view to see vehicles about to pass in the left hand lane. Can result in side swiping when changing lanes. All the safety features in the world won't help if the end result of the feature is to cause injury or fatality. Safety problem (2) the speedometer. In order to make the instrument panel look "cute" you have destroy the ability to see what speed the vehicle is moving. No need to go to 140 mph to start with. The jumps between markings make it just about impossible to quickly determine the speeds 50, 60, and 70 mph and forget trying for 55,65,75. What do you intend to do about these two very serious safety problems on my 2006 Subaru Outback"????" I am "dead" serious about this and will search all possibilities for a remedy.
