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.

2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Owner Comments

problem #2

Lancer 4-cyl

  • 33,000 miles


The very first application of the brakes upon starting exhibits increased stopping distance during parking lot maneuvers. Subsequent applications of the brake reveal full pedal force and normal stopping distance. Vehicle exhibits the same symptoms of recall 09V077000 but is outside the scope of the recall.

I took my car to veracom Mitsubishi san mateo C.a. where I purchased my 2008 Mitsubishi gts for the recall id # 09V077000 - service brakes, air:supply:check valve -, they denied the recalled and services on my vehicle and check there computer systems and showed me there was no recalled for this car and problems. I check the web site and that there is a recall for this problem. I am worry about the faulty parts and unsure where I can get help and to get it repaired. Today is Saturday and I have to drive very late to pick up my son from babysitter at night, I am concerned about the safety of my car and driving my car during the rain storm. Vehicle: 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer gts.
