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.

There is a major gas in my car. The spell is there 100% of the time. When you come within 20 feet of the car...you get the overwhelming gas spell. I'm afraid to drive the car at all now. I'm a single father on full disability, with a 16 year old daughter with no mother. I can't afford the gas which doubled due to the gas leak. More importantly...I can't drive my daughter to school...anywhere.

This car has had a problem with the O2 sensors, fuel line, oil leaks, fuse and electrical shorts from the start. We have tried to fix the problems, but the repairs never lasted long. The brake line recently started leaking. Today we were in a wreck because the brakes went out. We were traveling at 35 mph and should have had time to stop. The car slid under a truck, and was totaled. We were never contacted about any recalls involving our car.

The contact owns a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant. The contact stated that while driving 40 mph, the check engine warning lamp illuminated as the vehicle stalled. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic. The technician diagnosed that the crank shaft position sensor and the main ECU relay needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired however, the remedy failed to repair the failure. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure but did not offer any assistance since the vehicle was not included in any recalls. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 159,000.
