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.

There was no incident. I received a notice from Mitsubishi for the recall. The problem is/was Mitsubishi didn't make easy for the consumer to have the recall issue fixed. My dealer (glendale Mitsubishi) said they don't do recalls on saturdays. So myself and four other consumers got told they don't do recalls on saturdays. It was done there is also a recall on the transmission, I don't remember for what. I received a letter saying nothing would be done unless something broke.
