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 Evolution Owner Comments

Lancer Evolution 4-cyl

  • 53,500 miles


Very cold day out, about -15 F, warmed up my vehicle for about 5 minutes plus. Once I began driving, about 10 mph my service required light came on for my ayc pump. Dealer said that is was not covered under warranty of any kind. Mitsubishi has known that is a common issue in cold climates that use salt on the roads. The salt corrodes the pump and makes it faulty/malfunction. This is a safety item that needs to be recalled due to the knowledge that an evo driver handles their car [that they purchased as such] and looses that right with a faulty ayc pump.
