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 received a safety recall notice regarding my 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander regarding the drive belt and pulley system. I made an appointment with my dealership, jerry's Mitsubishi, in parkville md 21234 and then they cancelled the appointment stating they do not have the parts and have no date when they are to arrive. I tried calling Mitsubishi customer relations 888-648-7820 and their automated system doesn't allow nor can I ever speak to a customer service representative. I have also tried to contact NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 and again have no way of speaking with a representative. So it looks like the only avenue of approach is to submit this complaint which is not only for the recall but to complain about the inability to contact anyone live to complain about the dealership. I sincerely hope this gets attention.
