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.

My doors are falling off!! With my car it also started with the passenger door and now has moved onto my driver's side door! I'm taking it to the dealership this monday! This is ridiculous! I have a full time professional job and I'm climbing in and out of my back seat in from of my co-workers every morning and afternoon.... I can't afford to get these doors fixed, If my dealership doesn't fix these, I'm going to take it up a notch and go to the national Mitsubishi Headquaters.... Were any of you able to get your doors fixed?

Both the driver and passenger doors on our car are falling off due to defective door hinges. The doors are almost impossible to open and close. Who would think this would happen to a 4 year old car!

The doors are falling off! So far the assessment is that the hinges are broken. It started with the passenger door, then the drivers door, and now the back doors are making noise.

This whole thing is just bull. I am being told that the problem with the door hinges breaking is normal wear and tear and that it's not even covered under our extended warranty. You tell me what other car four years old has their doors falling off!! Our mother in law has the same car same year and she is also having the same exact problem. I spoke with Mitsubishi and they told me that it was a known problem but they weren't covering it. Thats just bad customer service!!!!!!!!! If there is anyone else with this problem please file a complaint and contact me using the link below. Lets all take a stand and put a stop to this whole problem!!!!
