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.

Outback 4-cyl

2010 Subaru Outback. Consumer writes in regards to excessive brake wear, at low mileage. The consumer took the vehicle to the dealer, for a brake inspection, due to an excessive noise coming from the rear brakes. The dealer informed the consumer the brake components had a considerable amount of rust as well as being worn out. The consumer believed the rear brake design was too small for the vehicle. He suspected the newer versions of the Outback's had a more heavy-duty rear brake design than his vehicle. The materials used in the original equipment installation were either improperly selected, installed or defective.
