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.

2003 Mitsubishi Montero Owner Comments

Montero 4WD 6-cyl

  • 114,000 miles


I have a 2003 Montero limited and suddenly my brakes failed and the car had a high piercing noise. I had the car towed to a near by Mitsubishi dealer in marlow heights Maryland only to be told that if it was the accumulator they would fixed it at no charge. However, after their review it they said it was the hydraulic brake booster and it would cost me $2500 after taking it to another mechanical shop I was told it was the accumulator and the part was $228 plus labor charges.
