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.

My seat belt warning light on the dashboard was coming on intermittently but usually went off if I turned the engine off and restarted it. But now it's on constantly. The dealer says it's a malfunction involving the passenger seat belt apparatus and it's not cover under the extended warranty. The cost of the repair is estimate to be over $350. I see online that many people have this problem with the 2005-2009 Outbacks. The mechanism is obviously defective and should be recalled.
