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

  • 61,790 miles


On Monday 09/05/2016 in gettysburg, pa on a flat surface the ABS warning light, hill assistance warning light, and vehicle dynamics control indicator light flashed on my screen. I pulled over and turned off the vehicle to read the manual regarding the warnings as indicated on the message I received. When I restarted the vehicle all the warning indicator lights disappeared. On 09/07/2016 the same warning lights and messages appeared. I took the vehicle to where we purchased it used and they advised they will contact me. I also stopped at the local Subaru dealer and informed them of my concerns. They advised it could be the brake light switch but unsure without running the diagnostics test. They also advised another crosstrek came in with the same issue and the consumer was unable to get the vehicle out of park. So far I haven't had any further issues but I am concerned my brakes may fail causing an accident.
