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.

While making a right or left consumer would hear noise for the front of the vehicle. Dealer has been contacted. Please at purchase, a slight churp was noticed, front right. It was checked, but not corrected. Afterwards, noise increased steadily. A front right brake was fixed, but continued to rattle. Sway bar/ bushings were repaired. Also steering became loose. However, churping continued. Diagnosis by a localmechanic claimed that churping and rattling was due to a defective sway bar link and peeling top bushing. But mitshibishi dealers disagreed with the diagnosis, and persuaded consumer to leave vehicle as it is.
