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 #1

My check engine light was on when I took my 2004 Mitsubishi Galant to the dealership. I had them run a diagnostic check on it to determine why it would not go off. The service advisor told me that I needed a catalytic converter and that a recall had been issued in 2006 to correct the problem. This was the 1st time I had been made aware that there had been a recall issued. The dealer refused to repair the catalytic converter due to the expiration of the recall. I do not think this is fair treatment. I was never notified that there was a defect. The dealership reflashed the PCM free of charge but would not replace the catalytic converter. I would like the dealership to replace the catalytic converter.
