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

Galant 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,500 miles


There is a rattling noise coming from under my car (2001 Mitsubishi Galant). This is a noise that I have never heard before. So I took the car to two different mechanics and was told that the noise is due to a defective suspension rack. My car is only 4 years old and only has 44,500 miles on it. This is a manufacturing defect. I called the Mitsubishi dealership in town and was told that the warranty had expired and that I was out of luck. But this is a major repair (the part is expensive, about $750) and it it not due to wear and tear. A suspension rack is not supposed to break on a 2001 car with only 44,500 miles. Is there anything that can be done? I can pay for the labor but I believe that Mitsubishi is responsible for the damaged part. Thank you. Catherine carlile
