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

Jul 172005

Eclipse 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 30,400 miles


I bought my 2003 Eclipse GT in March of 2004. At approximately 30,000 miles two bulges suddenlyappeared on left side front and rear tires (one bulge on each). When the car was taken to the Goodyear retailer I was told it was the result of running over pot holes. However, the position of the bulges doesn't suggest so. The tires are Goodyear rsas which came stock on the car. The tire size is P215/VR17.

Two out of four tires had bulges coming out of the sidewalls after less than 14,000 miles. Took them to Goodyear and they blamed it on me. They said the plys delaminated because I was running into too many potholes (which I wasn't). I've never had a tire do this before. I think the rsa's are an accident waiting to happen and a serious investigation needs to be initiated on these tires, especially the low-profile version. My tire size is P215/50vr17, and came stock on my 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse gts.
