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

2006 Subaru Outback sw. Coming home on the freeway, I heard what sounded like something was loose. Since my car is only 4 years old and I did buy it brand new, I couldn't imagine it was the muffler as that is what it sounded like. Upon looking under the car in my garage, I noticed that there was a bolt connecting the right rear tire to the axle missing, appearing as though it had been severed off. It is parked in a locked garage everyday and now the axle is drooping below the hole where the bolt should be. I have contacted my local Subaru dealer to repair this. I will not drive this car as I know it may cause an accident should the tire come off.
