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.

2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 222006


  • miles


A tire blew out on a 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer. In the process of changing the tire, the jack collapsed. No-one was hurt. There are other instances of this happening to other owners of these vehicles. Mitsubishi's North american customer service department was contacted. After little interest in this incident the customer service representative was asked if this wasn't considered a safety issue and of other reports of similar incidents on the internet. After being told to take the jack to a Mitsubishi dealer to verify the jack was defective the jack was replaced free of charge and the old jack was kept by the Mitsubishi dealer. Photo's of the broken jack were taken.
