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.

Outback 4-cyl

Driver's airbag light is constantly on the dashboard. This will cause airbags to not deploy during a collision. A brief internet search reveals the same issue is ongoing for many 2007 Subaru Outback models. It is believed to be due to faulty soldering of the overhead chip for the airbags. This should be considered as an extremely serious safety incident.

2007 Subaru Outback 2.5I, 4 snow tires, 5mt. This has happened several times. When driving the vehicle straight (no turns) on slightly icy or blowing snow roads, the rear end begins to wobble approxiamtley 3inches side to side. I am giving the car little to no throttle and it will still sway. The swaying becomes much worse with more weight in the car (1 foot side to side). The swaying is so bad that I often have to drive 15-20mph slower than general traffic. I have had new tires put on (snow tires) and had the car aligned. It still occurs.
