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

While driving my 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander the right rear brakes locked up and wore down the brake pad to nothing causing metal on metal contact with the rotor. I contacted Mitsubishi and had the vehicle towed to the closest Mitsubishi dealership. The mechanic at the dealership told me that the emergency brake cable had adjusted itself causing the brakes to do this. I questioned if it was a mechanical failure so it would be covered under warranty and he said no. Mitsubishi replaced the rear brake pads as "good will". I'm concerned that there is a defect in the emergency brake system. And what is going stop it from "readjusting itself" again. I believe that Mitsubishi is lying so it can save money on not recalling all Mitsubishi Outlanders and putting my family in a dangerous vehicle.
