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

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S some guys reported some problems with their front suspension on the Lancer ralliart. So far they have pics and info of 3 cases. They reported some metal sound before the failure. I have a 2004 Lancer sportback that have a strange metal sound in the front suspension area. A Mitsubishi service shop checked the wagon but could not find anything wrong some weeks ago. The metal sound is worst now and I am afraid that something like that could happen to me.
