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.

2007 Mitsubishi Galant Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 052007

Galant 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,000 miles


I purchased my 2007 Mitsubishi Galant on April 28, 2007. After about 7000 miles, my brakes started pulsating. I took a day off work to return to the dealer and have them fix this problem. The service department decided to just re-surface the rotors and send me on my way. About 7,000 miles later it happened again... so back to the dealership I went again and once again, they decided to resurface my rotors.. now of coarse at 22,000 miles on my vehicle, my break light has been coming on with the pulsation back and my brake pedal now continues to move toward the floor when at a complete stop. So back to the dealership again only to be told that my master cylinder & brake booster are leaking and they will replace the faulty parts but that my rotors are too low to resurface again and that I will have to spend about $400 out of my own pocket to replace them...there is obviously a problem with this brake system and I believe the rotors should have been replaced under warranty the first time or even the second time the pulsating happened.
