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

Lancer 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


Our 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer ES has only 15,520 miles on it and we've had to replace the front brake pads and rotors. We took it to the dealership and I asked if there was an issue with the brakes on this model of Mitsubishi, explaining that my wife drives this car and it is parked in a covered garage, as evidenced by the excellent condition and low mileage. I was told this seems to be low mileage for the front brake pads and rotors to require replacement, but that happens.
