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

Speedometer is impossible to read under certain lighting conditions- also wish to know if the air bag is being recalled. There is a clunking noise when backing up with the steering wheel turned. The dealer has replaced the hub bearings twice and it is still making this noise.

Outlander 6-cyl

Several electrical problems, my steering wheel has intermittent electrical outages. This effects the cruise control set button, the voice connect button. My rear passenger window gets jerky with an up or down motion causing the window to come out of its position and get stuck. My front inside lights either work or don't, depending on their mood. My speakers come in and out also when they want- if its a song they like, they'll work. Also, when my car is running and in park, my rear lights on the driver side don't come on. Once it is in drive or reverse, they do... oh and my windshield cracks from under the edge where it connects to the car?

All power outlets in the car are inoperable. I have taken the car into the dealer 5-6 times to have them all reset. I am told it is from using a phone charger (and I have even tried new/different phone chargers after each incident). On the last visit, I was told this is becoming a common problem, and the easiest fix is not to use a phone charger, and to use it only as a cigarette lighter. I've never heard of a car being unable to handle a phone charger. Taking it in to the dealer over and over is becoming incredibly annoying.

Entire dashboard cluster failed: Speedometer, tach, odometer, fuel gauge, computer. Car still ran, but there was no way to determine speed or gas remaining. Dealer had to replace entire dashboard.
