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 Eclipse Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 042006

Eclipse 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 71,000 miles


: the contact stated there was a strong odor of gasoline after the vehicle was parked. Upon further inspection underneath the vehicle, the contact discovered a small leak from the gasoline tank. Gasoline leakage was also present on the pavement where the vehicle was parked. There were no prior problems or any obvious road hazards. Although the leakage persisted, the vehicle was not seen by a dealer. Updated 3/9/2006 - a tiny pinhole size leak was found but the outside of the tank had no marks and showed no signs of damage.
