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.

2009 Mitsubishi Outlander Owner Comments

I was driving on the highway at 70 mph and without warning both of my low beam lights went out. I checked fuses and the next time I used the car the lights worked. My wife used the car one night and was driving on a dark country road and the lights once again went out without warning. She was very upset and returned home immediately. Luckily she was not too far from home. I found a recall for the 2009 Outlander that sounded just like of my problem (sr-15-002; etacs ECU). I called Mitsubishi and they said there was no recall on my vehicle and that I should take it to the dealer. I took it to the dealer and they verified the problem was the etacs ECU. They said my car was made 4 months outside the recall window but they contacted Mitsubishi to see if they would authorize the repair. Mitsubishi declined to authorize the repair. I contacted Mitsubishi for a written reason why, but they have not responded to date. I feel that this is a safety issue which should be covered by a recall.
