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

problem #1

Jan 162008

Galant ES 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


Well, folks, it was a real surprise to discover that the left rear wheel bearing on my '01 Mitsu Galant was totally SHOT. This was less than two weeks after purchase and after a so-called passing of inspection in the state of Texas! So much for our inspections here! Are they a joke? Many Texans say "Yes"! However, I have to admit that since then (in fact, throughout the majority of 2008), I have had no other repairs. No worries, just regular maintenance, replacing ALL fluids (not just oil), fully zMaxed it at 95K odometer reading (I doubt the previous owner did this). All in all, I'm glad I bought the THANG, even with that surprise repair almost a year ago in Jan. '08. Would I buy another Mitsu. Galant? You bet!
