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.

2001 Mitsubishi Galant Owner Comments

I was driving down the marbach rd at 40 mi hr street surface changed and my anti lock and traction light came on. Read the manual to rectify the problem did as said and the light went off but came back on later that day. Two weeks later while I was driving the car shut off, I was almost hit from behind. A sound of a thump and a whining sound then the brake went all the way down. Called dealer said $180 per wheel plus $72 to find which wheel because I am out of warranty. I can't afford this feel this can be hazard as I drive some time the car will pull opposite direction. In raining weather the car has little to no traction.
