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

Projector beam headlights with sharp cut off..... low beam lights are bright and great on level straight road at moderate speeds, deviate from that and it is dangerous. Need further penetration for high speed driving.. going downhill or on any slope and around curves limited visibility;;;. downhill freeway cloverleaf on ramp, impossible to negotiate safely with low beam.. depth of field 20 to 25 feet, extremely dangerous. Lights just cut off right in front of you. Have to turn on high beam to see... also lights do not light up the sides of roads very well, would not be able to see wildlife very well. Limited visibility turning corners in residential driving, hard to see pedestrians at side crosswalks. Hard to see projected path.. lights do not project high enough to the right to properly light up street signs. Self leveling may help with some of the issues, but not all of them.
