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.

The contact owns a 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse. The contact stated that the vehicle would idle low, causing it to stall intermittently. The dealer advised the contact to replace the manifold. The manufacturer was aware of the failure, but did not offer any assistance since the vehicle was no longer under warranty. No repairs were performed.

I do have a 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse and at 27,000 I had a clutch replaced and a price tag of $1,250 for the dealership the I purchased the car from I thought I would get a long time out of that repair that cost so much. I was only up set that the same problem arose again so called from the dealership. I called independent shop the diagnostic the complete problem the dealership stated was not wrong, I was told by an independent garage that the leaking was caused by the sled and that I needed the lines need to be replaced and possible a new clutch again. Because of the leakage problem. I find that the dealership failed and the manufacture failed to make the public aware of these problems. I seems the dealership wanted $1,6759.95 for the repair of a clutch not addressing the leak problems.
