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.

I felt a slight disturbance while driving the vehicle then a minute later the trannie slipped I pulled over and the fluid was pouring out of. Authorized dealer said it was the trans oil cooler. No evidence of how this actually happened and I am responsible for paying for it out of pocket for it and I still have my powertrain wty.

Several problems with 2004 mistsubish Outlander. All fixed under warranty, except latest problem. Car won't run. Had to tow to dealership. Car shakes and engine cuts completely out. Dealership not cooperating, fixed the wrong thing, engine still cuts out/stalls, now saying I "overfilled the gas tank, ruining the charcoal fuel canister." This is not covered under warranty?! there has to be another reason this happened. I have never overfilled or topped off my gas. I think they messed it up, or perhaps the gauges are wrong. If the gauges are wrong, it's a factory issue and should be covered under warranty!!!!

Upon light acceleration, without engaging a gear change, engine? will lose compression/power, tach fall 500-700 rps as speedometer rises. Engine ticks. Intermittent wipers speed decreases when vehicle at stop, air circulation fan speed decreases when vehicle at stop, brakes making noise. Despite repeated attempts to contact dealership and manufacturer, no one returns my call.
