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 #1

Jan 102002


  • miles
Rear window shattered in convertable top at 15 mph after normal acceleoration from 0 mph. We were stopped at a traffic light for several minutes with no other vehicles or persons present to either side or rear of vehicle. We were in a small line of traffic, 4 passenger cars from our position to the traffic light. Other problems noted by Mitsubishi dealership before rear window glass failure are excessive movement/popping of rear glass at speeds of 50+ mph. Pulling/stretch marks in fabric of top around rear window glass, fabric had begun to "shrink" upwards on the passenger and drivers side of top above front windows exposing interior of top. Upon inspection of the items by Mitsubishi dealer they considered all of the above items normal wear on convertable top. Mitsubishi denied warranty claim saying that "window glass does not just break on it's own".

- Norcross, GA, USA
