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

Galant 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,000 miles


I have developed a consistent squealing of my front brakes with only 12,500 miles on my 2004 Galant ls. I recently took my car back to dealer for scheduled maintenance and reported this to dealer. Dealer said they could not recreate this problem. When bringing the tsb's for this vehicle and complaints similar to this problem, advisor said to bring it back and he would investigate it further. When pulling out of dealership, the squealing began immediately. What is up with this inattention to what could be a potentially serious problem? I am tired of dealers trying to pass the blame on the materials being used in place of asbestos.
