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.

I received a recall notice in July that the brakes could fail if the ABS is activated. Mitsubishi referred me to a dealer (the only dealer in Nevada). The dealer said they can't make any repairs, because they don't have the parts to fix the car. So, I called Mitsubishi, and they said there is no repair solution available. So I requested a loaner, since my car is not safe to drive. They told me they don't supply loaners, and that I should continue driving the car unless the brakes fail. Unbelievable! two months later, the brakes failed after ABS system was activated in the rain and I slid through an intersection almost causing a major accident on a city street at 45mph after trying to stop using the emergency brake. The dealer wants to charge me for the tow (because the vehicle is disabled) and for storage (because they allegedly don't have parts to do the repair). Mitsubishi offered no help whatsoever. They referred me back to the dealer, and the dealer claims they can't make the repair. I told Mitsubishi about my previous experience, and they were no help at all. They said they aren't authorized to make any decisions, and that only the dealership can opt to tow/repair the car or supply a loaner. So now my car sits in the parking lot, broken down with no brakes, with a recall notice in the passenger seat. They want me to tow the car 45 miles out of my own pocket, or drive the car with no brakes. Then they expect me to pay for the loaner. And they expect me to pay for storage while the car sits on their lot waiting for Mitsubishi to come up with a repair solution. Unbelievable.

The contact owns a 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse. The contact stated that the brake pedal was slow to respond and difficult to depress. While traveling at an unknown rate of speed, the brake pedal was applied and did not respond. As a result, the contact crashed into the rear of another vehicle twice. The driver did not receive medical attention from either crash, but sustained neck and back pains. The air bags did not deploy. A police report was not filed. During the first crash, four tires separated from the vehicle. During the second crash, the two front tires fractured. The vehicle was towed to a repair shop for further inspection. The contact later received notification of NHTSA campaign number: 15V337000 (service brakes, hydraulic) and was unable to determine when the recall repair would be completed. The manufacturer was not notified of the failures. The failure mileage was not available.

While performing a stop the brake pedal lost all pressure and went to the floor. The car did stop but took longer to do so. After reviewing the recall notice for ABS brakes I brought the vehicle to a Mitsubishi dealer who confirmed there was a recall but did not inspect anything beyond driving the car to test the brakes. Between the time of the incident and the one and a half weeks they claimed was the next available appointment the brakes returned to normal operation. The recall (15V337) states the hydraulic unit will be flushed, cleaned and inspected. The dealer indicated they were only testing the braking system by driving it and when the incident did not produce the same result, that was the end of their responsibility until I received a certified letter from the manufacturer. This recall was issued in May 2015 and it is now the beginning of October 2015. The manufacturer is obviously delaying doing the appropriate inspection and repair while this dangerous issue continues to affect many consumers.
