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.

2007 Mitsubishi Outlander Owner Comments

problem #3

Dec 162015


  • 73,000 miles


I was driving my Outlander XLS AWD at low speed (~25 mph on a side street) when I heard a loud "pop", and lost control of the steering. I swerved into the oncoming lane, but was able to stop the car without hitting anything or anyone. I regained partial control of the steering, but the steering wheel was now nearly a half-turn off-center and did not fully control the car's direction. The problem was diagnosed as a rotted subframe, which suddenly failed. When the subframe cracked, steering/suspension components were thrown far out of alignment. Mitsubishi kindly replaced the subframe at their expense. The car had been in service for 8 years and 73,000 miles at the time of the incident.
