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.

2008 Mitsubishi Outlander Owner Comments

Outlander 6-cyl

While parked and turned off(for 15 minutes), the passenger side seat(heated seat) caught fire. The fire was discovered quickly and extinguished before significant damage took place. I filed a complaint with Mitsubishi who directed me to the local Mitsubishi dealer for a diagnostic. The Mitsubishi(kerry Mitsubishi) dealer would not share the results with me but contacted Mitsubishi. The "management team" at Mitsubishi rejected any responsibility saying that the fire came from an external source. I had only requested that they replace the faulty equipment in spite of the fact that this situation could have been much, much worse.
