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.

I was driving along on a normal city street and all of the sudden every indicator light began to come on...first the battery charging system, next the engine overheat warning, the ABS, the brake, the power steering, the air bag, etc. I began to lose power, idle roughly, and eventually die completely. It would not restart. The next day, I tried to jump start with no success at all. After further examination, noticed that the drive belt had come off the pulleys completely.

I went on vacation for seven days and when I returned I started the vehicle to make sure it would and it started just fine. The next morning as I was getting ready to leave for work, the vehicle stalled. I contacted roadside assistance and it was not the battery. I then towed the vehicle to a mechanic to have it looked at. They stated the engine may be done for because the compression levels were reading very low and the highest reading was a 41 of the four cylinders. They suggested its either the timing belt or the engine and that the timing belt should not have gone bad with only 60, 489 miles. I contacted Mitsubishi and learned I was over the manufacturer warranty by 489 miles. I'm lost for words and do not whether to go forward and get it fixed or if there's any other options for me.I do not understand how my timing belt could have went out while sitting in my parking lot whereas most break while driving. I've already had my drive belt replaced due to recall.
