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.

At 41,500 miles I had a basic front brake job performed on my car due to the steering wheel shaking severely while braking. Approximately 6 months later I had the rotors resurfaced due to the steering wheel shaking severely while braking. Approximately 7 months after that I had the rotors resurfaced again due to the steering wheel shaking severely while braking. I have contacted Mitsubishi for reimbursement to have this problem fixed and they stated that they will not since it is not a "safety issue". it is. How can Mitsubishi say this isn't a "safety issue"" what do I need to do to get a recall for this problem so that lives don't have to be lost"

When applying brakes, the steering shakes. Brake shoes and rotors are worn out at 19,000 miles (very premature); brake light comes on constantly in vehicle - replace w/ brake fluid, wheels screech when making a slow turn - Mitsubishi was contacted and they are giving a hard time about replacing the brakes w/19,000 miles.

Front brake rotors were oblong/misshaped. This caused the steering wheel to shake. Had happened at least twice before. The rotors would be replaced each time & the problem would reappear again.
