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

Galant 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 16,000 miles


I have a 2003 Galant that I purchased used at 16000 miles. I have had it for only 6 months and have put 5000 miles on it. Right after I bought it the brakes started squealing pulsing. I took it into the dealership who said there was nothing wrong with the brakes. They continued to get worse so I had them inspect them at the dealership again with my 2nd oil change. They said I needed all new brakes. How could I need all new brakes in less than 3000 miles? there is something wrong here. I won't pay them the $300 they want for this. I will take it somewhere else and have it done cheaper, but I don't think I should be out any money at all for what seems to be a defect.
