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.

2004 Mitsubishi Galant Owner Comments

I own an '04 Mitsubishi Galant and last October the heater stopped working for about 3 weeks and then suddenly started working again. I didn't turn the heater off for the rest of the winter in fear that it may die, again. Once again, this spring, as soon as I turned the heater off and then turned it back on, it wasn't working. I left the heater on starting the beginning of September in hopes that it would just start working on it's own, again. It's almost November and that hasn't happened. I called the local dealership to finally have it fixed correctly and the service guy told me that happens often in this model. This morning I decided to do a search on this little bit of knowledge and I have found a ton of complaints about the exact same thing. I am, obviously, still getting the repair done on Monday (Oct 27) but I am curious if you have encountered alot of complaints about this and if there are plans in the near future on a recall for this obvious defect.
