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.

2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Owner Comments

problem #1

#1- removing both front tires for brake maintenance, and cleaning of the tire-well. #2- three of the bolts securing the tire to the rim failed. One snap under light pressure (right side), two of the bolts were strip by the locking nut, rendering them useless (left side). This car feature anti-theft wheel covers installed by the dealer-distributor in pr which requires different type of locknut for the tire rim. #3- the car will be taken for service to an authorized repair shop and I will request replacement of all bolts with new safety nuts.
