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

Apr 182007

Outback 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 1,000 miles


This is a 2007 Outback 2.5I pzev with 5-speed manual transmission. When accelerating from a stop, the engine will bog down unless the engine is revved high prior to releasing the clutch. When it bogs down, the result is very slow acceleration. This is especially dangerous when turning left in traffic. To get the car out of this mode, the clutch need to be pushed in again and the engine revved to a higher RPM. Once the clutch is released, the car lunges forward and accelerates quickly. There seems to be no way to accelerate smoothly and quickly. This problem only occurs when using gasoline with 10% ethanol and is much worse with mobil regular gas.
