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.

2004 Mitsubishi Lancer Owner Comments

I just bought a Mitsubishi Lancer, seat belt is way too short, it literally chokes me, is hard to buckle and unbuckle with my hands/ Mitsubishi dealer says seat belt has to be defective before they will replace. They will not add an extension on it. I have 2 choices -don't wear a seat belt and get tickets or die in a wreck, or wear it, have to keep seat pushed so far back to make seat belt buckle- but then can hardly reach pedals, and cant breathe or be comfortable wearing it because it cuts off my chest terribly. I am permanently disabled with any problems and not being able to wear my seat bealt scares me as a seat belt save my life in Jan 2005.
