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.

2011 Subaru Outback Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 062010


  • 3,000 miles


The contact owns a 2011 Subaru Outback. The contact stated that the steering wheel was shaking abnormally when driving at various speeds. The dealer was unable to duplicate the failure. On a later date while driving approximately 45 mph, the front passenger side tire exploded. There were damages to the front end of the vehicle as a result. The vehicle was towed to a local repair facility where a diagnostic was performed that located the failure at the front passenger side ball joint. The manufacturer was contacted and the vehicle was re-examined. The manufacturer determined that the contact must have hit something that caused the ball joint to fracture and would not take any liability for the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 3,000.
