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 noticed oil dripping from underneath the motor and transmission took vehicle to the dealership they said it was to full of oil, took vehicle back home continued to leak, took vehicle back again to dealership for same leak they said it was the cvt filter so they replaced it. Took vehicle home parked it in garage when I woke up next day to check on it there was a puddle of oil under the motor and transmission, had to have the vehicle towed back to dealership and now they are saying the seal between the motor and trans. Is bad, then they said that wasn't it that the transmission's mold is defective and they have to order a new transmission from Mitsubishi in Japan, I haven't had the vehicle now for almost 3 weeks and they told me it would be another 2 weeks.
