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.

problem #2

Nov 232011

Eclipse GT 3.0L V6 Fl Dohc 24v

  • Automatic transmission
  • 103,560 miles


Just bought this car used for my daughter and the dashboard is cracked in several places. Not a big deal...yet. I do feel I need to get it checked out to make sure the passenger airbag will still deploy.

Eclipse GT V6

The dash cracked in about 5 places (so far). The dealership said this is typical of Eclipses, and barring dashboard replacement, there is nothing that can be done about it. Now, the cracks are forming patterns that are causing large pieces of the dash of fall off. What a piece.
