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.

2009 Subaru Outback Owner Comments

Outback 4-cyl

2009 Subaru Outback. Consumer states problems with the tire pressure monitoring system light illuminating. The consumer stated after he adjusted the tire pressure to the cold pressure of 32 psi front and 30 psi rear which was listed on the sticker on the drivers side door, the TPMS light illuminated when he drove the vehicle. The vehicle was taken in for service and the tire pressure was adjusted to 30 psi which caused the light to go out. The service tech recommended all four tires be adjusted to 30 psi for a period of time to determine if the TPMS would illuminate again. The consumer stated the TPMS was not working as designed, due to the fact, the light would illuminate when the tires were properly adjusted.
