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.

I have replaced the pads and turned the rotors on a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant de to correct the problem with the car shimmying and poor braking ability. This corrected the problem for only 5,000 miles. I can see that I am going to have to replace or turn the rotors again and possibly replace the brakes. I have a friend who is having the exact same problem with his 2001 Mitsubishi Galant ES. I have also talked to other owners who are experiencing the exact same problem. After I ahve found this web site I will refer them to write a complaint. This has been very frustraiting because there does not seem to be a resolution and the car is recently out of the warranty at only 36,000 miles. I would like to know if there are other people who are experiencing the same problems and if they have found a resolution ?

Brake problems since the beginning. Vibration when braking any speed, dealer couldn't locate the problem and pads where fine. Withen a few months I replaced the brake pads and had the rotors turned, I still have the vibration problem. I;ve heard about a factory recall on the brakes but couldn't locate any information with an online search.

The brakes on my car have been giving problems ever since I bought the car. I change the front brakes at the request of the dealers and paid almost $300. The brakes still give problem, they brake very slowly, forever squeeking and give off a dark fibre to the rim of the car.
