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. Notes: This new kid on the block has already earned the IIHS Top Safety Pick award for good ratings in 4 crash tests - moderate overlap frontal, side, rear and rollover.

XV Crosstrek 4-cyl

  • 25,000 miles


Intersection of airport blvd and scott St. In houston. Between 545 to 6 pm was the incident. Weather was perfect. Between 70 to 75 degrees. Bright and clear conditions. I was coming from the East side of airport blvd towards the South side of scott. This road was a 35 mph road. As I turned left seeing that the other side was clear, I started moving and I got hit by a Dodge duranngo who was speeding up at maybe 60-70 mph. I survived the accident but based on preliminary assessment, my car was declared totaled. The impact was so strong. The other driver were given various citations by the police and was determined to be at fault. He was also driving without an insurance and a license. I however felt aggrieved knowing that my car was totaled and I suffered minor injuries. I however was shocked that despite the strong impact of the collision, none of the airbags were deployed. I can provide photos if needed. The impacted side was on the front side and as I was navigating Subaru's website, it looks like they had recall of their 2004 to 2005 vehicles for issues of air bags not deploying on the right side. This is where I absorbed a strong impact on my car and I have a suspicion that I have a similar case. Subaru crosstrek 2013 was I think their first release of this model so there are not many studies of the performance of this vehicle. I demand for an investigation. My accident could have turned out fatal.
