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.

2001 Mitsubishi Diamante Owner Comments

Diamante 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 99,000 miles


Seat belt on drivers side of of 2001 Mitsubishi, Diamante has retracted back into the side column retractor mechenism and will not release back out. Took vehicle to a local service repair shop and they did not have an answer. The retractor is a sealed unit from the mfg. And can't be opened. It appears that the retractor is rivited to the vehicle frame. Called the Mitsubishi dealer and asked if there is a way to release the belt and if there is a recall. Their answer was no and they needeed to look at the car. I was told it is not under warranty even though it is a safety issue. I don't know where to have this repaired or replaced.
