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.

problem #2

Endeavor ES V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles

We have an 04 Mitsubishi Endeavor and the paint job is horrible. The clear coat is peeling and the body is rusting and cracking. We have owned it now for 7 years and although the parts under the hood work great the cosmetics are terrible. We don't care of course because it gets us from A to B without leaving us stranded but it sure is ugly! Our other car is an 03 Honda Accord. If you look on the worst vehicles list this one is listed at #2. So, compared to the Honda the Mitsubishi is luxury! Other than the paint and body issues the Mitsubishi has been good to it gets 1 star for beauty and 5 stars for reliability!
