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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Received notice of brake issue recall after having two incidents where brakes completely let go when sudden braking on a regular city street. Called dealership and told to call back; called back after one additional incident where I applied the brakes as I was driving on a city street and they did not catch for quite a while (nearly hit two cars), plus now leaking brake fluid, and dealer told me if I am concerned about crashes or being injured, pay for all repairs yourself. They don't know how to remedy. I am terrified I am going to die while they ignore the issue and just maybe hope it goes away? this is criminal and I feel a class action lawsuit is in order for all of us mitsibishi Eclipse owners who have to endure terror and fear for our lives just to drive our car.

I have had several incidents over several months when I step on the brake, it goes to the floor. I quickly pump the brakes and braking effectiveness returns. There has also been times where brake pedal feels mushy. I took to local dealer after almost rear ending a vehicle when it stopped suddenly.. I told them I had received the recall notice but it had told me to wait for further instruction. I informed the dealer that something had to be done as vehicle was unsafe. They performed an ABS recall inspection and told me car was fine......".I said no it's not and something needs to be done now. The dealer said they would get back to me. Oct 2nd the brake failed and in avoiding another car I went into the ditch causing damage to car and mild whiplash. Car was towed. I informed dealer and asked what I should do.......he said they could flush system but most likely the ABS unit needed replacing and they did not have it. I talked to mitchubishi N.awho informed me that there was no recall........I now have a car that insurance will fix but I will pay $500 deductible for a car that I am afraid to drive, so now what do I do? the accident happened on a city street when I was preparing to turn left. State patrol and ems responded.

Slammed on the brakes to avoid hitting something and now the brakes are very spongy and need to pressed all the way down to stop. Also makes a noise when letting go of the pedal. Was sent a recall notice months ago and the parts still aren't available. Hoping it doesn't get any worse while Mitsubishi plays around getting the parts to stop my car.
