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.

2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Owner Comments

problem #1

I purchased this vehicle brand new, and what a mistake it was. I have begun the process of declaring the lemon law. I have had the vehicle into the shop for repairs 8 times in 4 months. The drive shaft had to be replaced because the boot split and leaked grease. The fog lights fill with moisture and condensation due too inadequate venting. The windows don't seal too the body on the convertible causing water leaks, and the seals located on the quarter glass rub the door window which allows the rubber to wear prematurely and create additional leaks. I have had to have the rear quarter glass replaced 5 times in 4,000 miles. The car vibrates while driving because the tires are bad. I had to have the front two replaced because the tread was seperating internally on the tires. Mitsubishi needs to take responsibility for all the cars on the road with defects. Please help
