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.

The contact owns a 2010 Mitsubishi Outlander. After the vehicle was started, one of the front headlights failed to operate intermittently. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the front headlight bulb needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer where the vehicle was serviced under NHTSA campaign number: 15V232000 (electrical system); however, the failure recurred. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 12,000. Updated 09/18/15

Hi, when you have the A/C on max and your head lights on the lights dim every time the A/C compressor kick on and stays dim until the compressor kicks off. I took it to the dealer they said the battery was bad and replaced it. The problem was still there they had me bring it back in and they kept it for seven hour and called me to come pick it up they found nothing wrong. They said there was no dimming and the alternator is putting out fine with everything turned on. I still have the problem and when going down the road depending on how much the compressor is kick it looks like you are flashing your lights at the car ahead of you. If you go on Mitsubishi forum web site this has been a problem from 2003 to 2011 and people are being lied to by the dealers. I have been told by other machines that the alternators are to small and being stressed and will fail. I have a lot of traveling to do starting next month to other states I need this fixed. I worry about being behind a police officer with my lights flickering.
