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.

Standing water on driver side floor.HVAC drain plug is clogged and now warning lights for many different items are appearing on dash display and this is caused by water running through. I do not know of many auto makers that put drain plug under dash board. This could very well turn into an electrical and or fire hazard. Contacted dealer and was told this was the first they have heard of this. There are many many many complaints online so they do know about the problem.

Noise of sloshing water in the trunk and water dripping onto the driver's floor; soaking wet carpet. Very bad odor! causing a sick feeling. Rear passenger windows failed; right and left approximately six months apart. The malfunction caused the windows to fall down into the door panel. Roaring noise coming from both front and rear wheels.

The contact owns a 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor. The contact stated that the ignition switch failed. The vehicle was unresponsive when shifted into drive and the contact attempted to accelerate. In addition, the neutral indicator would illuminate erroneously when the vehicle was shifted into drive. The vehicle was previously repaired under NHTSA campaign id number: 08V139000 (electrical system: Ignition switch). The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but the contact was told that the warranty on the repair had ended. The failure mileage was 142,000 and the current mileage was 142,700.

It looks like that the Mitsubishi Endeavor has design defects where the A/C water leaks inside the car. I started to notice water under driver and rear seats. I thought that this is due to rain but when I took it for repair the mechanic told me that this is due to the A/C and the water is not draining out instead it is draining inside. I also went to the dealership here in jacksonville, fl and they also told me that this is a know problem and happens with this model. They told me that I have to either replace the compressor for $800 or they can clean and do something that will temporarily fix the problem costing $189. They also told me that there is no recall even though they know that this is a manufacturing defect. There is no guarantee that this problem will not happen even if I replace the compressor. Which is insane!!! searching the internet reviled that a lot of people are having the same issue. So far I drained more than 3 gallons of water from under the driver and rear passenger seats. I cannot use A/C in hot Florida weather. So much water inside the car can also cause short circuit even fire. I believe this is a serious problem which Mitsubishi should recall and fix.

2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor, over the pass year are so the black paint has been fading away and they only paint the spots that has faded (why not repaint the hold thing and same time they agree it is a defect). This next problem is current, 12-1-2008 I can not remove the key from the ignition after I put it in park and just rotate the key to turn off the SUV the rotation stop and I can not remove it or began to force it to home position my key as of today 12-2-2008 is still in the ignition it will just rotate enough to turn the motor off and that is it, will this fall under the current recall of the electrical ignition problem.

The consumer had to take the vehicle into the dealer because none of the windows would roll down, and the doors would not lock or unlock from the driver side remote button. A whining noise was heard in the transmission. Windshield wiper blades would not turn off. Warning light in the dash continues to come on.
