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.

1998 Mitsubishi Mirage Owner Comments

I am an original owner of a 1998 Mirage. This winter my front passenger side door became hard to open and close (stiff). Eventually, my open door light became permanently activated. After that, the door would not close appropriately. It seemed it was hanging down and began rubbing on the side of the car. At this point, I was going to have it looked at when the door fell on me. I had to use a jack to raise and close it. Needless to say, the door is completely inoperable. I contacted Mitsubishi. I asked if they had heard of any such incidents. He responded, he had not heard of anything like it but referred me to my nearest Mitsubishi dealer. I took it in the next day, but the service department would not even look at my car because it had been in an accident. I had been involved in a small fender bender 2 years ago that affected the front right side of my bumper. I explained this to him but he would not deal with the situation. I do not believe the door problem is in any way associated. Nothing was done to correct the problem.
