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.

5 years after buying vehicle, brake pedal would sporadically push all the way to the floor. Took me 3 years for someone to figure out what was wrong with spongy, whistling brakes. ABS hydraulic unit had grease caked under it, and the shop would not let me drive my car because it was too dangerous. Had ABS system replaced on my $, a year later a recall came out on the ABS hydraulic unit. Mitsubishi denied my claim for reimbursement because the place that fixed it failed to write on the form the reasons I came in to get it fixed. Apparently I'm going to have an $800 part replaced for no reason. Found on NHTSA the indicators of a bad part and the fact that it is documented my ABS light came on should be enough. Also, passenger side door: The automatic lock no longer works and there is no key hole on that side; could be a slight issue but is more annoying than anything and puts car at risk for theft.

May 2015: Received recall notice. Defect might affect braking. Local mitsu dealer said replacement part had not yet arrived. Dealer's inspection verified that the damage would require replacement, not simply a cleaning overhaul of the part. Dealer said that they would call when the part was available for replacement. We have called the dealer on the average of once a month and always received the same answer. The recall document does clearly state that if the part were not replaced a crash could occur. We are eager to have our car restored to working condition. We are senior citizens who depend on our car. What further action can we take to facilitate repair?

My car was recalled for the anit-lock braking system and the recall notice stated that the repair would take approx 2.0 hrs to evaluate and 4.0 to repair. The dealer had my car for 7 days and would not give me a loaner car. The reason they had it so long was because Mitsubishi did not let the dealers have the replacement part. They had to fax the info to Mitsubishi for approval then wait for the part to be shipped. They would not give me my car back when I told them I had to get to work they told me there was nothing they could do. I don't understand why if it's a known recall Mitsubishi doesn't at least let the dealer have 1 or 2 parts on hand and then replace them as used. It's totally unacceptable for Mitsubishi to expect to have someone's car for a week. They stated it wasn't their problem that I would have to rent a car in order to get to work. I had to pay over $200 for a "free recall". shame on you Mitsubishi.
