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.

problem #1

Dec 192007


  • 7,500 miles
The contact owns a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer. In rainy weather conditions, the contact noticed water entering the vehicle through the driver side cabin. Also, the tires have premature tread wear. He took the vehicle to the dealer and a technician replaced all four tires and performed a wheel alignment. Several months later, the tire tread displayed abnormal wear again. He took the vehicle back to the dealer and was informed that they would have to realign the tires and replace all four again. The vehicle has not been repaired because the dealer cannot identify the cause of the failures. The failure mileage was 7,500 and current mileage was 19,000.
