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.

2004 Mitsubishi Galant Owner Comments

problem #2

Jun 212009


  • 90,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Mitsubishi Galant. The vehicle was parked and the contact was unable to exit from the front driver side door. The door would not open and the contact had to exit the vehicle through the front passenger door. The vehicle was taken to the dealer but the technician was unable to diagnose the failure. The contact stated that the failure would only recur in warmer temperatures. The contact believed the inside door panel would become stuck to the vehicle, causing the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure also recurred with the front passenger side door. The approximate failure mileage was 90,000.

In Oct. 2006 I took my vehicle in because the right front and rear doors were sticking and not opening at times. The dealer replaced the door panels. In July 2008 I took the vehicle to a different dealer for the same problem with right front and rear doors. They replaced the clips that hold the door panel to the frame, sighting poor design of the door panels. Currently (Jan. 2010) I am again having this problem with the right front and rear doors again and now the driver's front door. This will be the third time I've had this issue with the passenger doors. Mitsubishi does not feel this a concern to them since my vehicle is no longer covered under warranty. My concern is that this is a safety issue, currently three of my four doors get stuck and will not open at times, what if I were in an accident and needed to get out of the car? please help me bring attention to this matter.
