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.

After replacing front/rear brake pads, calipers, and rotors plus applying the proper lubricant brakes not only still squeal but I am having occasional grinding mainly coming from the front disc. Have had them inspected by multiple mechanics. They said everything looked fine. Diagnosis has yet to be determined not only by mechanics but apparently by Mitsubishi. This is my only transportation after just having to lease this vehicle to find out this is a very common issue that has not had attention from Mitsubishi. I have always owned american made vehicles because of too many fears from foreign manufactures. I chose this vehicle because Mitsubishi has great designs. As for producing a recall for this very known problem. It seems like producing this recall would only put Mitsubishi further in debt. If honor is what your culture live by, then honor this mistake before many lives are lost.
