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

Sep 202005

Eclipse 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 25,000 miles


The contact stated while driving at night the headlights malfunctioned. The vehicle was taken to a certified dealership. Upon inspection the dealer determined that the wiring harness to the head lights melted. Also, the oil light was coming on intermittently. The oil valve was replaced. These repairs were made at the contact's expense....headlights did not blink but went off altogether. When the consumer reported it to the dealer, was told we see this all the time with that make and model. Consumer wanted to know why there was no recall.
