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 #2

Eclipse 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 200 miles


Hi, I bought my Eclipse in September 2003 and a month later one of my external fog lights broke without any reason, I went to the dealer and told me that must be a rock hitting the fog light and that was not included in the new car warranty, also told me the price for replacement was $160 which it seems to me a ridiculous price for a fog light so I went back thinking was my bad luck it happen to me, now here I am a year and half after the incident with my fog light still broken since I have had not the money to replace it. But now I am seeing a lot owners with the same exact problem that mine and I think those fog lights are defective and should be replaced at not cost to the owner.

I had the car, about for 5 to 6 months, and one day I was heading out to a friends when I realized that my fog light was busted. I knew I never hit anything of that sort or had anything hit it. I took it to the Mitsubishi dealership and they said a rock might have hit it. I went online to, that is the car club for Eclipse owners and you go under promblem reports and you see that many peoples fog lights have just busted. Even if a rock would have hit it, then it should have with stood it. And most of the complaints say that the Mitsubishi team states that a rock must have hit it. If you could please check on this, thanks.
