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

My Subaru legacy Outback bucks, surges when going on any small or big incline. It occurs all the tends to make me slide more cause of the surges especially when icy or wet. I took it in 3 times to a dealership to fix the problem before the warranty ran out. They told me that they were aware of the 07,08's having this problem. It was in the computer/electronics. They did nothing to fix it. I see that Toyota is having problems and ignored this problem. So is Subaru. It is a computer defect that Subaru said they would eventually fix. It was the computer hooked to the driver's pedal and gas. I sent letters to the main Subaru office, talked to the dealership. I didn't know where to go after this.
