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.

bad engine

Just wanted to let you people know that problem #1 and problem #2 are the same, it's called crankwalk, and that should be the biggest most advertised problem with the 2nd Generation Eclipse. A lot of 95s and 97s. Notoriously earned Mitsubishi the nickname "satan dealership"
