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.

My 2005 Galant has been experiencing brake problems I reported it to Mitsubishi dealer before my warranty expired and they told me there was nothing wrong just a glaze. I finally took it somewhere else to get the brakes done they replaced the pads 2 weeks later the brakes started making noise since then I have taken them back for the same problem over and over again all they tell me, its a glaze but the noise gets louder. The engine also makes a clicking noise that doesn't sound right.

There is a recall on certain 2005 Galants but I was told not mine. I am having the same problems with my brakes as the recall states. I have had it to the dealer and told the first time that there was nothing wrong. The second time they ordered a timing part but I feel that is not the problem. I go tomorrow to have the part put on. I fear for my safety with these malfunctioning brakes. They make a terrible grinding noise and my car lurches forward about 4 inches and is only getting worse. I asked just because my car isn't in the recall it doesn't mean I am not having the same problem. How long do I need to ride around in a car with damaged brakes before the problem is corrected. I have not had an accident yet and would like to get this problem fixed so I don't end up in one.
