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.

2008 Subaru Outback Owner Comments

A year ago, my vehicle would stall at every stop (vehicle should be noted is stick shift). After that, the check engine light came on and vehicle ran fine. I drove it with check engine light on accordingly. I just received vehicle back from Subaru for recalls wqd40 (catalyst convertor) and wqk47 (brake lines). When I started car, check engine light is off and now stalls at every stop, which shuts down car including power brakes and power steering. I called Subaru and they said they have no other complaints, but I don't think that is true. I think there is an issue and it is dangerous to lose brakes and steering. Subaru wants to charge me to look at it and I don't want to pay them. My personal mechanic cannot figure it out.
