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

My 2003 mitsubisihi Lancer oz is experiencing some type of problem with the rear suspension. We've had the car for 3 years and it has 45,000 miles, and we've driven in very gently. Most of the 45K are highway miles from commuting to work. There is a horrible squeaking noise coming from the rear of the vehicle. There is no reason this vehicle should have any problem with the rear suspension, yet it does, and we're no longer covered by the warranty so we have to pay $75 to even get it looked at.
