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.

2001 Mitsubishi Mirage Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 112005

Mirage 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 67,000 miles


The airconditioner compressor blew a pressure valve because one of the valves stuck. This car is a 2001 mistubishi Mirage is only 4 years old with 67,000 miles on it, and the air conditioning is only used for half the year as I live in the midwest. I have been told that it will cost between $1,200 and $1,600 dollars, which is about half of the trade-in value. I called Mitsubishi and they told me there is nothing they can do about it because it is out of warranty. I have a feeling I am not the only customer who has had this problem.
