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

Outback 4-cyl

  • 64,000 miles


The brakes failed completely when I was driving down the road about to enter the highway. The pedal went all the way to the floor. No braking action whatsoever. I was able to swerve to avoid the car in front of me and eventually stop by using the emergency brake. The car had just been serviced (60K interval) by the dealer including flushing the brake lines and installing new rear brake pads. Subsequent investigation by a different dealer revealed that the caliper and brake pad had fallen off the car, causing total brake failure and putting occupants (including a 4 year old) at extreme bodily risk.
