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.

1999 Mitsubishi Colt Space Star Owner Comments

problem #1

Colt Space Star

  • 10,000 miles


Since when the car was only 1000 miles old, the right window (glass) from time to time (once in a month) locked itself in the "fully down" position, but it came up within a few minutes of trying. At 10000 miles finally it stuck there without any way of closing it. The glass lift motor was subsituted fully under warranty. The manufacturer says that it is a common problem of this make/model of car (many early glass lift motors were defective).
