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.

Lights dim very frequently at night. The alternator was replaced. Problem is still present. Taken to be fixed 3 times, could not be fixed. This was reported to dealer within a month of purchase of the vehicle. They have done nothing. Mitsubishi has been notified and are currently looking into the problem. The cause is still unknown.

Lights dim frequently at night took to dealer, dealer replaced alternator under warranty. Problems still persist. Also tires squeel unusualy loud when taking turns at normal speeds. Brakes shake when applied. Strongly considering trading in for other brand of car. Will never by Mitsubishi ever again!
