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.

Contact stated everything underneath the vehicle was rusted, and going toward the engine. The vehicle had to be towed to the service station. The inside of the left wheel well cracked, causing the wheel bearing to break, and the driveshaft to slip down, causing the gears to grind in the drivshaft, sensors for the wheel well, and the components of the axle assembly were rusted. When the mechanic was taking the bolts from the inside of the driveshaft to replace it, the bolts disintegrated. Mechanic stated that the manufacturer did not spray the rust corrosion protection on the vehicle. It had not been repaired yet, but the consumer was going to take the vehicle to the service dealer to be serviced. Consumer did contact Mitsubishi, but the warranty was not valid overseas. But once the consumer was back in the United States warranty would be valid. The manufacturer told consumer to take the vehicle to a service dealer to have it serviced.
