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.

2009 Mitsubishi Galant Owner Comments

Galant 4-cyl

  • miles


I purchased my car brand new back in Dec of 2008. Not even three years later, three (3) of the four (4) tires have severe cracking where the tread meets the sidewall. The only reason the fourth tire wasn't damaged the same way is I had a nail stuck in the sidewall prior the first tire failure and had to replace it, so I can only assume it would have had the same issues. I had a slow leak and noticed the cracking on one of the tires when filling with air. The mechanic was the one who pointed out the other tire starting to crack the same way. Tonight I noticed the third tire (last original tire) also had the same cracking.
