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.

2007 Subaru Outback Owner Comments

problem #1

May 012007

Outback 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,500 miles


I purchased the car in February. Up until late may, the air conditioning system was working flawlessly. It then started blowing cold for about ten seconds and then warm for five. This problem causes the cruise control to behave erratic, the transmission to shift erratically and the engine to surge because the compressor is engaging and disengaging. I have had the car in for service for this issue four times. The first three diagnosed the problem as overcharging of the ac system. The last one I was told this was normal operation (but why just all of a sudden start at 4000 miles?)
