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.

We received a recall notice on a 2009 Mitsubishi Outlander. It was purchased in October of 2009. The recall notice was sent by mail March 17, 2010. The car was purchased at Edison motors, brad benson dealer in monmouth, N.J. it was purchased new. It was sent to almaty, kazahkstan to my son who works for the state department and lives there with his wife and two very young children. The recall was to replace the brake booster valve. I called the dealer and they said it had been done. To double check, I called Mitsubishi and they say it has not been done. We have asked Edison to send my son the parts, because the warranty is not recognized out of the U.S.a., and he will have it placed into the car. Is there any way you can check with the VIN#[xxx] to see if the work has been done. The car is under the name of [xxx]. if you can please put our minds at ease information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
