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.

2003 Mitsubishi Galant Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 012004


  • 100,000 miles


I hit a deer due to not being able to stop because my seat unlocked and slid back all the way, than I hit the deer and wrecked my whole front end. Have dodged some major crashes due to my seat sliding. Ever since I got my car when it came out in 03' the driver seat slips when it should be locked happens randomly (extremely unsafe) Mitsubishi should fix or replace the seat mechanism before more people get injured. Feels like it decides when to lock and when to "let go" sending me into a slide towards the back of the vehicle. It's pretty much a death trap.

I had purchased a new Mitsubishi gallant 2003 two weeks before being involved in a hit and run from the rear on the highway. Because I was struck from the rear, my seat must have jolted and ultimately broke so that I was in the lay down position. If I had someone in my backseat, I would've crushed their legs. If I were on a city street with only one hand on the wheel (as most people drive these days) I could've hurt myself more seriously or someone else. This seems like it's a major issue and should be addressed. Not safe. I will never purchase another Mitsubishi product again in my life. I have no faith in this product.
