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.

2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 212011

Eclipse 6-cyl

  • 67,746 miles


Today, April 21, 2011, I put my key in the ignition switch and my key broke. The metal part of the key had broken out of the plastic end. I was able to get the key out of the ignition. Upon inspecting both sets of keys, I noticed that both keys have a crack in the plastic starting from the posterior left corner base of the metal end extending mid way into the posterior plastic part. Both keys have the exact type of crack located in the same area consisting of the same width and pattern. Naturally, the crack in the broken key is alittle longer then the other key. This is obviously a design flaw considering that both keys consist of the same type of cracks. I have pictures of the keys and I also still have the defective key parts in my possession. I went to a Mitsubishi dealership in shreveport, Louisiana later this evening to repair one of the keys.
