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.

2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse Owner Comments

Problem: Harness. Every time I lift the steering wheel up, the engine turns off. I have tried to go to the Mitsubishi dealer and to Honda Sierra where I bought the car (used) and they didn't want to take responsibility for it. I was like a tennis ball, so, I got tired of it. I even send a letter to Honda Sierra to deal with the problem because I bought if defective. Unfortunately, I did not get a response. Repair cost more than 300 dollars. I don't have money yet, and im still hopeful that either of the two parties are willing to work with the problem.
