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.

The contact owns a 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse. While driving approximately 30 mph, the brake pedal had to be depressed to the floorboard to stop the vehicle.

Bought brand new 2007 Mitsubishi vehicle that had strange loud sounds occurring every time when brakes were applied slowly while driving in traffic everyday. Took vehicle to Mitsubishi dealership 3 times within the same month to remedy the problem. Mitsubishi dealership stated loud sounds were due to brake dust buildup. Had requested to have brakes replaced because brake dust buildup was unlikely to create those kind of loud sounds after being cleaned by the Mitsubishi dealership 3 times within the same month. Mitsubishi dealership still has not resolved this problem, and I believed the brakes were defective.
