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 Montero Owner Comments

problem #2

Montero 4WD

The problem is when Montero runs into a flood area (about only 4 inches deep water) with speed about 30 mph, water may spread over the windshield and roof that the drive could not see anything for a couple of seconds. It is potentially dangerous and scaring, especially on a high-speed freeway. I believe it needs additional fenders or a re-designed front skid plate under the bumper to stop the upward water.
