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.

2003 Mitsubishi Lancer Owner Comments

Brake pads manufactured by carbotech engineering manufacturer a brake pad for the 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer evolution that is sold as a "direct stock replacement" upon questioned by several customers who bought these pads (myself included) about obscenely loud noises and worse than stock braking ability, they refused to look at the situation and correct the situation as necessary. Then admitted that the pads are not for the evolution and that the pads do not fit the application they were sold for. They refused to refund money or to further research the issue of braking safety. They continue to sell the pads that they know are not a proper fit potentially causing a brake failure and a fatal accident.
