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.

Brake problems with 2001 Mitsubishi Galant SE. Vehicle in for warranty repairs two times for strong steering wheel vibration and shimmy when braking. Both times, excessive warping and uneven wear found on rotars and brake pads. Vehicle has only 32000 miles, and is not driven in stop/go traffic. Repair shop machined rotars, but unable or unwilling to determine cause of constant uneven wear on rotars and brake pads. Mitsubishi contacted 1/5/04 for further review / consideration. Vehicle warranty expires in one month.
