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.

Electrical - I have replaced my right brake light about 20 times before I was informed it was an electrical issue. I purchased a new socket the light work for 2 weeks and now its off again. Unknown - everytime it rains hard my front passenger floods with a pool of water. This is the second time this has happened now my car smell like mold. The dealer told me there were leaves clogging the hose, out of everyone I know with a car this has never happened to them. I can't wait to trade this car in. I will never ever get a mitsu and I will stop anyone I know from purchasing one.

Began having trouble with both rear windows. The windows would intermittently become unresponsive to controls both at the driver seat and the controls on the doors. Brought the car in before the warranty expired (4 yrs, 8 mos) to get windows repaired, dealer could not duplicate the errors and did not do any service on the car. Six months later (after warranty expired), the rear, passenger side power window went completely down on its own (I had not touched window controls). While I was driving my car and would not go back up. Independent garage had to remove door panel and sever the controls in order to get the window up; then had to wedge the window with a block to keep it up until parts could be ordered. If any pets or children had been in the car when the window first went down, they could have easily gone out the window.
