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

Service engine soon light came on; took car to dealership. Discoverd that filler neck has rusted out requiring replacement. This was reported to me by the dealership to be common with this model. The vehicle is a 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse gs. The filler neck has completely rusted out. The filler neck is located directly behind the rear passenger side tire. This car is only 5 years old. "pipes" should not be rusting after 5 years of use. There is no cover over the filler neck to protect it from road conditions and weather. Also appears there was no protective coating on the metal. A ccv test showed a strong odor from the filler neck. All other tests on the car passed. More tests to be run once filler neck replaced.
