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.

I have a 2003 Mitsubishi Galant ES. It has 69000 miles. As of right now the problem with my car hasn't caused an accident but I am afraid in the future it might. It started with the radio staying on even after the key is pulled, then it went to that if I used the wipers and the headlights at the same time, the wipers wouldn't shut off until I shut the headlights off. We then had to pull the fuse for the horn, because while sitting in the garage, not running, hadn't been running for several hours, the horn started blaring, and wouldn't go off until my husband disconnected the battery. I am scared for my own safety as well as others, to use the cruise. I am scared it will stay on, and I would be involved in a severe crash. Please help, no one seems to know exactly what the problem is.

When ever I crank the car up in the morning or afternoon after the car sits for a while the exhaust smells like bad eggs. The radio/cd was replace three times already and the cd player still sounds staticty when playind disc and the speakers pop when the radio is completely off. Also when ever some gets in and out of the car they get shocked by it to the point where U can actually see the spark from the shock. And when the car is just siting running U can feel the car shake like it is about to cut off.
