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.

Refusal to comply with recall id# 01V254001. We took our 2001 Montero to the Mitsubishi dealer as the brake part had gone bad just as stated in the recall. The dealer said the vehicle had been inspected when new and it was deemed ok. It was never replaced and now that it has become defective they will not replace it.
