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.

2003 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 012007

Lancer Evolution 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer evolution. At 65,000 miles, the vehicle would not turn off when the key was released from the ignition. The only way to turn off the vehicle was by removing a fuse. The windshield wipers would activate by themselves. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer and was informed that the failure was due to a corroded wiring harness. The failure was corrected temporarily, but then the windshield wipers, high beams, fog lights, headlights, and parking lights failed. He took the vehicle back to the dealer and was informed that five wiring harnesses needed to be replaced. The vehicle is not currently repaired due to the cost of the repair. The current mileage was 65,000 and failure mileage was 75,000.
