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.

Had recall repaired (fuel injection pipe)@ pomoco hampton va. Immediately afterwards, engine light came on while driving 6 miles up the road. Five days later water started leaking on driver side only. Took vehicle back to dealer. They stated, a hose was missing on recall repair. I wondered why whenever I topped off gas @ the pump, fuel leaked from back tire area under vehicle. Fire hazard. They quoted 1500 to fix water leak. Got a it fix @ another auto repair. Six mths later, back to pomoco for yrly inspection, 2 days later, whenever I press brakes, make turns on city streets, highway, or in motion I feel something rolls under my feet but cant see it, must be underneath. A mth afterwards, everything is wet. All the floor boards, puddles. Cardboard, towels nothing will stop the water flow with ac functioning. I have 128,000 miles on the vehicle, bought in 2010 with 51,000 on it. Ever since the fuel pipe recall, that pomoco took 3 mths to complete because they didnt want to do the work which forced me to file complaint with the corporation, NHTSA, & one other, I've had water problems. This will be taken to a higher legal level due to this is & continues to cause harm, intentional or otherwise. We're advised here not to get personal but mold & mushrooms etc, should not exist in a vehicle. I see this has been an issue with lots of others and nothing done to date. Started in around Oct 2015 (recall repair) & again May 2016.

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.

Water leaking in the car from under the dash. I understand this is common for this vehicle....if this is a manufacture error why should they be required to correct it.

I noticed water dropping from under the drivers dashboard occasionally and thought it was condensation/sweating in July 2010. This year on vacation I noticed the carpet was full of water on the drivers side including the rear floorboard with mildew growing every where. This is my wife's vehicle, so I don't drive it very often. She had bronchitis for two and a half months this spring that could not be explained that three different kinds of antibiotics, steroids, and a nebulizer machine couldn't make her better. Now I know what caused her prolonged illness, driving her car every day with mildew under the floor mats and in the air. My whole family has either allergies, asthma or both. After we returned from vacation I googled for a answer to find where the condensation tube was located to clear it and possibly stop it from leaking inside.much to my surprise the internet search resulted with a bevy of complaints about the very same problem ! I read forums, articles, and complaints with the end result that Mitsubishi was charging $1000 to fix. Since then they issued a service bulletin on how to repair the problem with out taking the whole A/C unit out. There is a tsb report # 09-55-002 on the problem with the findings that insulation used in the housing falls apart and clogs the drain inside the housing.the design of the A/C condenser inside the vehicle is asking for leaks and problems. I can't expose my family to mold and mildew every time the A/C is used. The water in the carpet smells very bad and will rust the floorboards and the frame of the truck! this makes the problem two fold. The rust is a safety issue and the mold is a severe health issue for people especially with respiratory problems. I am very upset and will be contacting the Mitsubishi regional service rep. For the Washington D.C. area. Please recall! many more can't or won't complain! thank you.....

2004 Mitsubishi endevor's paint is deteriorating. After about 3 years of owning the vehicle, the clear coat over the paint started to deteriorate on several parts of the vehicle. The consumer contacted Mitsubishi and was informed they were aware of the problem and they would take care of it. The consumer asked them to re-paint the entire vehicle, but they refused and only painted the areas that were damaged. A year later, more parts of the paint started to deteriorate, and again they refused to paint the entire vehicle.
