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.

Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6) 2009 Subaru Outback windshield wipers ice up too easily, necessitating my pulling over and manually removing ice from between the metal parts. Have had a mild winter here and was only a problem in the past during serious winter storms. Dealer could only replace with same design. The 2010 Subaru all have redesigned wiper blades that are covered to prevent the problem. These blades do not fit my model. A call to 800-subaru3, [xxx] said Subaru has no plans to change the wiper blades on the 2009 model. Present design is dangerous here in northern Ohio.
