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.

XV Crosstrek

The driver headrest. I am a 72 year old driver who is 5'. I just purchased this used car on 9/4/15, have gone maybe 20 miles so far, and my neck is killing me. The headrest just dosen't hit the back of my head or top of my head at any point that is comfortable and now, so soon, my neck hurts! I feel less in control of this car because I am already adapting by leaning forward slightly so that this thing is not bumping my neck/head. As far as I can tell at this point, I can't tilt headrest back, only up and down....and no height accommodates me.
