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.

2002 Mitsubishi Galant Owner Comments

problem #1

May 292002


  • miles


Severe steering vibrations at highway speeds 60mph & above. The dealer has, so far, replaced front right transaxle, balanced tires 4-times, and replaced oem Goodyear Eagle ls tires (205/55/16) with Bridgestone potenza tires (205/55/16). However, the front tires repeatedly get out of balance every now and then, and severe steering vibrations continue at 60mph highway speed, which is creating a potential life-threatening safety hazard every time the vehicle is driven over 60-65 mph speeds.
